Dr. Hector Ocaranza, City/County Health Authority was "at a loss for words" while sharing the news. He stresses in the City of El Paso's press release for our community to not put others at risk. Even though 1,385 people have recovered from COVID-19, there are 1,008 active cases within the county.
El Pasoans are strongly urged to follow safety precautions as the city begins to reopen, along with the rest of the state of Texas. 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.
PLEASE, PLEASE stay home if you do not need to be out.
