As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott has ordered some new mandates. After allowing Texas to reopen in many ways, Gov. Abbott is now somewhat closing Texas back up and telling residents to put that face-covering on ASAP.

Starting at 12:01 pm on Friday, July 3rd, Texans must wear a face covering if they live in a county with 20 or more COVID-19 cases, according to TexasTribune.com.

Sorry, El Pasoans who do not believe in face coverings, we have over 6,000 cases so start shopping for that mask. If you need to find some local masks, Monika has been so kind as to create a list of local stores selling them.

If you are more into making your own, I have a little step-by-step guide for you using a bandana and a coffee filter.

In case you need some help to better understand how to wear a mask, feel free to print out this poster and tape it to your wall. You can even save the image and make it the wallpaper on your phone! Honestly, whatever you have to do to remind yourself that you MUST wear a mask starting tomorrow.
