According to as of June 8th, 2020, The City of El Paso Department of Public Health has reported 77 new COVID-19 confirmed cases, which brings the total confirmed cases in El Paso, Texas to 3,454.

Sadly, one additional death has been reported. The total COVID-19 related deaths in El Paso, Texas is now at 91.

El Pasoans are strongly urged to follow safety precautions to keep this city of continuing this increase. Free testing as also been extended so please, if you feel it is necessary, get tested for the safety of you, your family and our community.

Yesterday, Governor Greg Abbott has issued phase three of Texas reopening the state, which means businesses will now be at 50% and on June 12th, restaurants can open up to 75%. Still have some caution when going out and engaging in activities with others.

Have some common sense when going out and about El Paso. Even though there has been a drop in cases, that might just mean results have not come in yet. We must continue to practice social distancing as we work to create our new normal in our community.
