I've heard that some cities in our great state of Texas are making it a requirement to wear masks or face coverings while in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Despite Governor Abbott allowing businesses to slowly open back up, I do not believe that wearing a mask is a state mandate but who knows if that could change in the future?I speak to friends and family members and see others expressing their opinions about it on social media should this become a requirement. Most agree that they will be compliant, while others say they will refuse. The top reasons I've heard are that:

  1. they do not own a mask
  2. masks are uncomfortable and not easy to breathe in
  3. cannot be forced to do so
  4. are not afraid of contracting Coronavirus

What do you think? Thoughts? Opinions? Would you wear a mask in public if it were required?
