Despite new tone from Abbott on masks, RPT Chairman Dickey holds firm they will not be required at GOP convention

Reporter John Moritz with the story in the Corpus Christi Caller Times:

The Texas Republican State Convention, which is projected to have about 2,000 more delegates and alternates than the party's planned national gathering, is continuing as a live event next month in Houston with no mandate that participants wear masks.

Texas GOP Chairman James Dickey said Wednesday there will be "no mask shaming" for those who chose to cover the faces to avoid any coronavirus spread. But no one will be required to wear one even though Republican Gov. Greg Abbott this week strongly encouraged all Texans to wear masks in public as a way to help tame the renewed surge in COVID-19 cases statewide.
