A Houston nightclub planning a March 10 “mask off” party to coincide with Texas’ lifting of a statewide mask mandate has both public officials and citizens expressing concern over a potential superspreader event in the making. 

According to the Houston Chronicle, Texas State Rep. Ann Johnson, a Democrat representing a Houston district, “slammed the owners of Concrete Cowboy for planning an event [on March 10] to mark the end of COVID-19 protective measures, including restrictions on the number of customers and required masks when not dining.” 

The article continued, “She fears such a gathering, dubbed the ‘Mask Off Party’ in social media posts, could contribute to a COVID-19 surge in Houston.”
