Well, some food for thought:
Harris County TX, where I live, instituted the first mask mandate took effect April 27th. Since then, there have been multiple mask mandate extensions and modifications. The first one said they would fine the individuals, now they’ll fine the businesses. April saw cases pretty constant and they started to raise in the 2nd week of May. They continued to climb until the peak on the 1st of July and they have been on the decline since.
Seems like that’s been pretty consistent in every state and each county. Looking at charts across the nation, it doesn’t seem like there’s a huge deviation in states with mask mandates. Anyone else see something different?
