Emergency Management Head Says Texans Should Wear Masks at Home

“The one thing I want to try to get across today is we need to do that when we’re in our homes also.” Nim Kidd, Head of the Texas Division of Emergency Management, wants Texans to wear masks inside their homes. Kidd recently gave an interview with Fox News at Nine host Ryan Wolf. “We still need people to wear the mask out in public, we still need people to keep social distance and isolation,” Kidd told the host. “Ryan, the one thing I want to try to get across today is we need to do that when we’re in our homes also.”

Kidd went on to express what he called a need for the public to “follow the rules” when they’re in their home. “While we believe the community is doing a great job of following the rules when they are outside the home,” Kidd said, “we really need to be thinking about doing the same thing when we’re inside the home.”

Governor Abbott signed a controversial executive order in early July mandating the compulsory wearing of face masks, in what was seen as an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. The mandate came as wider testing revealed thousands of more COVID cases and the nation’s death rate for the virus has been plummeting from its heights of previous months. The governor’s order specified that a first-time violation of the mask order will result in a warning, while a second-time violation may carry a fine not to exceed $250. No one can be jailed for breaking the executive order.  In the days following Abbott’s order, the Austin City Council approved a fine of $2,000 for anyone not wearing a face mask.

Meanwhile, some think that a doctor in Odessa, Texas, might have a silver bullet for COVID-19. Read more on that at this link.

Nim Kidd, who says he’s a “life-long San Antonian,” told Ryan Wolf that people should consider wearing a face mask at home if they’ve been “out in public” and haven’t “decontaminated” when they get home. Kidd suggested that “multigenerational families” living in one home as one reason for wearing masks in the house. Watch the full video with Kidd at this link.

Do you think Texans should wear face masks in their own homes?

  1. Either Chief Kidd is KIDDING (doubt it)…or…he has been wearing a mask too long and entirely cut off the oxygen supply to his brain while breathing in a steady supply of his own carbon dioxide. There is no one, in this state, in this nation, or on this planet, that will mandate me to wear a mask in my own home! He has lost his d*** mind.
