When Gov. Greg Abbott ended Texas’s Covid mask mandate and capacity limits, President Joe Biden called him a “neanderthal” and progressives wished death on Texans. Will hard-blue Connecticut get the same treatment?
Gov. Ned Lamont announced Thursday that most capacity limits in the Nutmeg State will end Friday, March 19, including restaurants, retail, gyms, offices, and houses of worship. Still, masks are required and bars close at 11 p.m. (Covid really gets going at 11:01), but this reopening is a significant move for a Democrat-run state.
Biden has yet to weigh in on Connecticut, but he blasted Texas Wednesday. “I hope everyone’s realized by now these masks make a difference,” Biden told reporters. “The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime everything’s fine, take off your mask, forget it. It still matters.”
