After hearing a presentation on telephones and first responder equipment at Monday’s regularly scheduled Commissioners Court meeting, County Judge Rudy Madrid updated the court on the latest COVID-19 surge affecting the community.

“The county testing facility (on FM 1355) is up-and-running, and boy they are doing a really great job out there over the past week as the number of cases has started to rise,” Judge Madrid said. “They are working and giving tests until as late as 10 at night, and they stayed open this weekend to give tests due to the huge demand and the need to protect public health.”
