A Single Texas Hotel Reports $350k in Lost Revenue Due to End of Mask Mandate

Earlier this month, Texas GOP Governor Greg Abbot defied health experts when he lifted his state’s mask mandate.

Now, Texas entrepreneurs are paying the price.

According to a report in Thursday’s Texas Tribune, at least four organizations cancelled conventions in Austin, the state capital, citing health concerns stemming from Abbot’s dismissal of CDC guidelines. The Austin Hilton has lost $350,000 in revenue because of the cancellations, according to Austin Convention Enterprises.


On Thursday, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology cited the expiration of Texas’ Covid-19-related precautions when it announced that it would no longer be holding the in-person portion of its annual conference that was set to take place in Austin. It’s unclear if the organization is one of the four already reported on.

The CEO of the health organization told The Texas Tribune that the mask mandate ending “felt like the rug being pulled out from underneath us.”

I will call and email both of my senators. One may have a conscience.

My senators are Cornyn and Cruz. No hope for Cruz, but there is an outside chance that Cornyn may be reasonable. My Representative died of Covid on Sunday.

Any thoughts on what to say other than, "Convict the SOB."

Thank you to my heart donors!

I didn't realize until this morning that I had been avoiding looking at pictures of the oval office.

It was such a pleasure to actually focus on the person behind the desk and see that it was President Biden!
