At the conference, Judge Treviño gave the updated numbers of confirmed cases in the county: 195 positive cases, with 62 cleared.

During the conference, Treviño continued emphasizing the importance of social distancing.

Treviño addressed questions regarding the use of face-covering in public places order. He advised that all residents should use one when out in public, specifying that if you’re out running or walking it is not necessary, however, he would encourage everyone to take the precaution of wearing one.

He also touched on questions the community had about wearing one while driving.

Treviño said that, ideally, there should only be one person per vehicle, unless there is an essential need for additional individuals to leave the household.

If there are more than two people in the vehicle, Treviño says it would be advised to use masks even if they are family members.

Treviño also mentioned that he wouldn’t want to lift the orders prematurely, as it could have counterproductive effects on the progress made to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“I haven’t seen my mom in about 5 weeks. So, I hope that this ends soon, but I don’t want it to end so soon or so abruptly that we’re back at square one, after the sacrifices that we’ve made,” said Treviño at the conference.
