City Reports Eight COVID-19 Deaths


The City of San Angelo reported eight COVID-19 deaths today, exceeding the seven announced on August 7, 2020.

Deaths from COVID-19 soared in November, rising by 58 with one day left in the month.  Our community is in the midst of a serious public health crisis.  Protecting self and fellow citizens is priority #1 until vaccines can be delivered and administered to achieve herd immunity.

City Council should shed some like on our public health emergency preparedness activities and get as much information out as possible on patterns in transmission.  Public health officials have not gone before Council in quite some time.  

Leadership is required in times of crisis.  Mayor Gunther and Dr. Vretis have been front and center but those with official roles have not informed Council of the status of our growing emergency and plans to stem the rising tide of deaths.

Update 11-30-20:  The City reported three more deaths from COVID-19 bringing the total to 61 for the month of November and 151 since the pandemic began.
