“As we continue to open the City and make strides in fighting against COVID-19 through vaccinations, we continue to monitor cases closely,” said Brownsville Mayor Trey Mendez. “We want to protect our government workers as they continue their dedicated work to keep our city running. It is important that we continue to wear masks for now.”
