EDINBURG – “For the past year, I have repeatedly relied on the guidance of the CDC as well as local health experts regarding COVID.

And while I welcome the latest move by the CDC to allow vaccinated people to dispense with facial coverings in most cases, I continue to have concerns about people visiting our county health clinics.

They are there because they are ill, possibly with COVID, and facial coverings makes sense. Given that, Governor Abbott’s sweeping mandate to dispense with facial coverings in all settings but hospitals is extremely worrisome.”
