    Starting March 10th in Texas, Governor Abbott states we no longer have to wear masks and 100% open. This will be interesting. I will continue to wear mine. Y'all's thoughts? Only 13% of Texans have received the vaccine and only 7% have received both.

    Hello Lisa,

    Hope you are doing well and staying safe. Have you seen the new changes to your old site in Irving?

    Managers are continuing to wear masks and signs on our doors are still advising customers to do the same. We will continue till everyone is confident and comfortable in this new post-Covid world.  

    Thanks,
    Raheem

    At our stores, We are still wearing masks and taking precautions to keep our employees and customers healthy.  I believe customers expect a clean and healthy atmosphere, including COVID precautions.

    I love the Texas spirit of freedom and leaving individuals/businesses to make their own decisions.  The fact is, new COVID cases have not been on a decline for long.  See the link below to track Covid cases: COVID STATISTICS

    We at SurePont Self Storage are still requiring our managers to wear face masks and expect customers to do the same. We think many customers will only deal with vendors that respect their safety and hence wear face masks. Personally if I see a vendor unmasked, I turn stound and walk out.

    I know CubeSmart is still requiring managers to wear masks at three stores they manage for us. Their covid protocol is unchanged by Abbott decision.

    Our managers will continue wearing masks and we will keep our mask signs posted. We will serve customers who chose not to wear a mask.

    We will continue to wear masks and keep our counter shield in place. I agree that we need to be proactive in our responsibility to our customers.

    Our county leaders are still urging people to wear masks and socially distance so I believe most people will keep wearing the masks. Our staff will wear masks and our office set up creates a natural counter distance between staff and customers. We will not require customers to wear masks, it will be their choice.
