Victoria Emergency Management Meeting 3-25-2020
Today's meeting included a discussion about 3 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Victoria County. Those individuals are reported to be doing ok as they are isolated and avoiding contact with others. Lots of questions have come up about Covid-19 testing. Dr. McNeill says they have conducted between 70 and 100 tests so far and the private sector has also concluded additional testing on their own. Patients who are being tested should self isolate until they get those results back.
A Covid-19 test site is in use at the community center. That site opened on Tuesday and conducted 5 tests that morning. This site will be opened a couple of days a week and more frequently if needed. The panel discussed a simple symptoms self-check list available on the CDC website if you have questions.
Earlier today Dr. John McNeill stopped by the studios to give our Townsquare Media stations an update on Covid-19 in Victoria. You can see our conversation with him in the video below.
Thursday's 3 PM meeting will be carried by Townsquare Media radio stations on social media.
