Texas has been mask-free since the beginning of March, but it has created a standoff between business owners across the state trying to mitigate Covid-19 outbreaks and their customers.
"It’s amazing what people, what kind of people there are that will go out of their way to have their two cents put in that they’re against having to wear a mask," said Wayne LaCombe, co-owner at Legends Diner in Denton, Texas, added a $75 charge for people who debate the restaurant’s policy after Texas repealed its mask mandate and allowed businesses to operate at 100% capacity.
Texan business owners like LaCombe said they’ve fielded vicious calls from strangers and some have even received death threats.
