City leaders focusing on education over enforcement of state mask mandate

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Mayor Pope thanked first responders and health care workers for the long hours they've dedicated to keeping the city healthy and safe.

At an Ice Cream with the Mayor, he said as time has passed, some views on how best to deal with the pandemic have changed. But he still believes on simple thing -- wearing a face mask can save lives. 

"Some of the very same people that I hear from that are the loudest about the sanctity of life, born or unborn, are people who are telling me that they are not wearing masks. That doesn't jive with me. I only have a bachelors and I probably struggled to get our of school but that doesn't add up," Mayor Pope said. 

He says rather than focusing on enforcement of the governor's mask mandate, the city has stressed how researchers and doctors, backed by science, want us all to wear masks in public to stop the spread of COVID-19.
