Volume 35, No.  126 Tuesday, June 30, 2020 ***************************************************************************

57 new Coronavirus cases revealed Monday: The surge of COVID-19 cases continues in Liberty County. 57 new cases yesterday was the biggest one day report since the pandemic began in March. Now there’s been 281 confirmed cases. The Liberty County Office of Emergency Management reported patients range in age from under 10 to their 60s. 24 of those come from the North Liberty County area. The other 33 are south-enders. There still have been three deaths overall, attributed to COVID-19, and those came in the earliest days of this tragedy. Experts who know, remind citizens of the importance of wearing a mask, washing hands, and if its time to sneeze or cough do so into your elbow. The same experts say if a fever rises over 100 degrees stay home. Previously, the biggest one day report was 30 cases discovered with testing. That was heard on KSHN June 18th. ***************************************************************************

State Senator Robert Nichol’s urges no second shutdown: The stunning spike in COVID-19 cases across Texas has some public officials calling for another lockdown. District 3 State Senator Robert Nichols has a different opinion. He says another statewide shutdown The Senator, who represents all of 16 counties and portions of two others, says the state already will deal with a budget shortfall due to the impact of this pandemic. State Senator Robert Nichols says targeting hot spots around the state, is better than a one size fits all approach of shutting the whole economy. All if Liberty County is one of the counties represented by State Senator Nichols. Again, State Senator Robert Nichols says the Texas economy just can’t handle another statewide shutdown. ******************************************************************************

Summer Workouts Suspended: The Liberty ISD Athletic Department has suspended summer work out programs until July 13th. This move is out of an abundance of caution after a Liberty High School student who attended project graduation Thursday tested positive for COVID-19. Here’s LISD athletic director Chad Taylor on the decision. Coach Taylor says because of just the possibility of exposure to COVID-19, he felt suspending the workout program until July 13th is the right thing to do. Chad Taylor said before the suspension, participation in the summer program has been great. Coach Taylor looks forward to all athletes at LISD getting back to workouts on July 13th.  Again, because an LHS student who attended project graduation last Thursday has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result the summer workout program for LISD athletes is suspended.    ******************************************************************************

More COVID-19 Testing for anyone: The Texas Department of State Health Services has set another Mobile Test Collection date for COVID-19 at the Liberty Fire Department. The date is Thursday, July 9 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. This test is free, however those wanting tests should make a reservation online or by phone. Online make a reservation at TXCOVIDTEST.org.
