TEXAS COVID POLL - At least 57-percent of Texas voters support mask requirements in schools and indoor public places, based on local coronavirus conditions. That's according to new survey results released yesterday from the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune. The poll's co-director Jim Henson told Texas Standard most of the state also favors vaccine mandates in the workplace.

"More than half support allowing businesses to requiring employees to provide either proof of vaccination or submit to testing," Henson explained. "About half approve of allowing government entities to require employees to require the same."
