The Texas Supreme Court on Sunday granted stay orders against temporary retraining orders by courts of appeals in San Antonio and Dallas that allowed mask mandates despite the governor’s executive order prohibiting them.
The courts granted the orders against Gov. Greg Abbott to bar enforcement of the executive order. A hearing on a temporary injunction in the Bexar County case, scheduled Monday, is not affected, nor is a hearing on a temporary injunction in the Dallas County case set August 24.
