Below, read his reasoning about the policy and then decide.

Smith told The Washington Post that "being scared all the time isn't good for your health. It suppresses your immune system."

Elgin, which is located just outside of Austin, has at least 53 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services reports there have been more than 57,900 cases statewide and at least 1,562 deaths.

While some locals welcomed Smith's decision, others call it irresponsible.

"I wasn't allowed to wear a mask when entering - decided it was best to just leave instead after a few minutes of people being rude. Unfortunately, since as a healthy person who's not at risk, I wanted to support a local bar while still being safe and social distancing," wrote one reviewer on the tavern's Facebook page. "I'd rather spend money at a place that respects people's autonomy, life, and health concerns (and doesn't say their health is just "feelings")."

Charles Chamberlain told KXAN that he feels comfortable hanging out at the tavern. "I'm a stage 4 cancer survivor. It's just a choice. He just put that up there to let people know if they aren't feeling good, then they maybe shouldn't come," said Chamberlain. "Everybody is keeping safe distances, they aren't bunching up."
Texas Governor Greg Abbott allowed bars and restaurants to reopen in the Lone Star state last week, with bars to operate at 25% capacity and restaurants at 50% capacity. 

While the Liberty Tree Tavern banished face masks, Smith said customers do need to maintain social distancing of six feet between parties and he says he will adhere to the occupancy limits.

"Sorry for the inconveniences please bare with us thru the ridiculous fearful times," his note reads.

Even if they don’t I respect the bar owners right to set rules in his own business and my right to not enter. I wouldn’t go there just because I don’t like being told what I have to do, one way or another.

How do you imbibe a drink or eat while wearing a mask? Maybe those little red cocktail straws will fit through the small holes of a crocheted mask?

A virus that runs out of gas at 6 feet. Not much of a virus. Of course, most masks are a joke. The virus goes through them like they were not even there. Even the CDC admits this now, although for some reason they still recommend wearing them. Probably to give people a false sense of security.

Masks are potentially dangerous because they facilitate a hypoxic state.

Republicans say you can go to all the bars and restaurants you want, but don't come crying to them if you get sick.
