The All-Republican Texas Supreme Court on Sunday temporarily renewed a ban imposed on local mask orders by Governor Greg Abbott, thwarting efforts by officials in Dallas and Pexar districts to enforce Govt-19 restrictions as the virus plagues hospitals.
Judges upheld his July 29 executive order, which removed local authority in measures to reduce the severity of the epidemic, and granted Abbott’s request for an emergency injunction restraining court decisions under which he would allow officers in those districts to require masks in schools or indoors.
