Laredo: $1,000 Fine For Not Wearing A Mask Even Though There ARE No Masks Available

The above is my version of title by Penny Starr at Breitbart.

One commenter wrote:

“Illegal and unconstitutional. You can’t force citizens to purchase something. It’s a violation of commerce clause. Moreover, where the hell will they get a mask anyway. Don’t pay these fines Texans. Just keep social distance.”

Another well-informed commenter posted this:

“Without the correct mask, it does you no good. While those who work in health care settings are advised to wear the N95 face mask, there is no such advisory for the general public. The N95 face mask is only recommended for health professionals dealing with patients who may be infected with the coronavirus. No face mask is advised for people who don’t work in health care settings where coronavirus poses a risk.”
