Truly happy to see Galveston Mayor Craig Brown give Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver and Ball High graduate Mike Evans a key to the city; however, I saw both the mayor and Evans not wearing a mask and standing less than 6 feet apart during the celebration parade.

So, question: Do we no longer wear a mask at a sanctioned event, following the lead of our maskless mayor?

Editor's note: To the best of the photographer's recollection and based on out-take photos, Brown was wearing a mask before he began speaking at the event.

well i would assume if it was a parade it was outside so why wear a mask?

Masks and distancing are choices, no longer mandated. We need to stop finding fault with everything.

Really. It’s their choice. I can’t believe the way this country and the people has become. Stop before it’s too late.
