ANGLETON — Requiring Texans to wear masks is part of a compact between businesses and customers to protect each other from the spread of COVID-19, an aide to Gov. Greg Abbott told a local chamber audience Wednesday.
“This is not just about the businesses upgrading safety,” said Adriana Cruz, Abbott’s executive director of economic development and tourism. “It is also a compact with the customer who also had to do their part. If businesses are doing their part to keep their employees safe and to keep their environment safe, then customers also needed to do that.”
