Posted on July 24, 2020 at 5:30 PM by TML Staff

Urgent Updates:


Is there an update today?


Not a substantive one because there’s no new city-related information to report. That’s not to say, however, that things are going well. In many parts of Texas, the virus is spreading at an alarming rate.


League staff heard from the leadership of the governor’s “strike force” on a briefing call today. The strike force includes the state’s top doctor (Dr. John Hellerstedt, Commissioner of the Department of State Health Services), who advised that all Texans must continue to practice recommended guidelines (hand-washing, social distancing, and wearing a face covering) if we are to slow the spread of the virus in our state.


More information is available from DSHS, including a dashboard showing virus-related data across the state.


In addition, according to a Tweet, the secretary of the U.S. Health and Human Services Department extended the nation’s public health emergency for an additional 90 days today.
