Border city orders residents to wear masks

     In a preemptive strike at controlling the spread of the coronavirus, the Texas border city of Laredo has ordered everyone five years old and older to wear masks. This includes people who go to grocery stores, pharmacies, and even those getting out of their cars to pump gas.

The Laredo City Council mandated this week that anyone who enters a building that is not their home must cover their mouth and nose with a mask, bandana, scarf or any fabric, per the Laredo Morning Times.

The U.S. Surgeon General changed its tone after learning there’s a good amount of asymptomatic spread of the virus. They’re now asking the CDC to discuss whether or not people should be wearing the masks to help prevent the spread.

If people are caught not covering their nose and mouth, they face a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 in Laredo.

As of Thursday morning, there are 956,588 confirmed cases of coronavirus, 48,582 have died, and 192,530 have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University & Medicine.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott clarified an order he issued on Tuesday, saying it β€˜requires all Texans to stay at home.’
