West Virginia Gov Jim Justice (R) expressed frustration in an interview with CNN on Thursday about other GOP governors in Texas and Mississippi who got rid of the masks, saying the state would keep the joint. Limit yourself at this time.
“I’m not going to let this become political football,” Judge told CNN’s John King. “In West Virginia, we want to be careful, we want safety, we want to respect the rights of everyone and everything, and we do it. Correct throughout this thing “
Throughout the pandemic, Justice said: “We have always listened to the experts and let them lead us all along… We were brave. But we are careful “
“If we get more and more vaccines, we will get rid of the masks. But I really don̵7;t know what to quickly get rid of, because these masks save a lot of life, ”he adds. The judge added that he and his medical advisor had not yet discussed the removal of the mask mandate, “if we were not careful, we could make a mistake.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves both announced this week that they would leverage all of the state’s concealment powers and business capacity limits. However, big retailers such as Target, CVS Health and Aldi say they will maintain their own mask requirements even in states that have lifted their enforcement.
