On Monday’s Houston Matters: We learn how the latest CDC mask guidelines will play out in everyday life from Dr. Peter Hotez of Baylor College of Medicine.

Also this hour: Language in the deed restrictions of the Oak Forest neighborhood bars non-Caucasians from owning or occupying lots there. While those clauses are unenforceable, we learn about efforts to make it easier to remove such language.

Then, veterinarian Dr. Lori Teller answers your questions.

And we get an update on sports from Terrance Harris of The Defender Network.
