That would indicate to me that the virus is becoming more widespread,” he said. “And if you just look at the hospital data, you’re seeing an increased number in hospitalizations. So I think it’s another indicator.” – Dr. Nick Karr Watch
“One of the areas we’re focused on is trying to get more testing to first responders. More testing is really what’s going to be needed to get this virus under control.” – Dr. Nick Karr Watch Interview
“[Ross Perot Jr.] said safety is the key to keeping AllianceTexas running through the pandemic.
