Nearly 94,000 Kids Got COVID-19 Last Week. They Were 15% Of All New Cases

Our COVID situation is critical. There are currently only 2 pediatric ICU beds available in our region and children’s hospitals in North Texas are over 97% capacity.

Please take steps necessary to protect yourself and your family. Get vaccinated. Wear your mask. Stay out of large crowds.
