Here's a list of Austin businesses still requiring masks during pandemic

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said on March 2 the state won't mandate wearing face masks in public anymore. A groundswell of Austin businesses have said that's not going to change their safety policies.

Despite the recommendations of health experts to maintain safety protocols at a crucial moment in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Abbott announced that he will lift the state mask mandate and remove capacity limits from businesses starting March 10. Individual businesses, according to the governor, can still set their own safety protocols, and many Austin businesses are doing just that.

Here's a list of restaurants and stores in town keeping their mask policies, according to social media posts. This list is not comprehensive, but if you see a major omission, email us at features@statesman.com. Visit individual websites or social media accounts for the specifics of their mask policies.
