Big cities all across Texas are asking Governor Abbott to consider making wearing masks in public to limit the spread of COVID-19 a "mandatory" action, and some cities like Waco have already issued proclamations ordering it their jurisdictions.

Which brings us to Killeen and Mayor Jose Segarra who, according to a report from the Killeen Daily Herald's Artie Phillips, says that he is in favor of requiring people to wear masks in public, adding that he was planning to propose the requirements be county-wide.

Segarra made the comments on Monday during a video meeting with county officials who are also considering the matter in light of the growing spike in cases over the last few days.

The problem, of course, is enforcing any "mask" order. While they are considering fines for businesses and individuals, in reality, getting the general public to follow along is going to be much tougher.
