A Letter From Mayor Chris Riley | 09/24/2021


     There were 52,585 new COVID cases in August, three times the number from July. 12.5% of these cases were from children age 9 and below. However, the good news is the number of people who have tested positive for COVID each week has been on a 100% downward trajectory.  The positivity rate on August 10th was 21.4% and has gone down every week, with this week’s positivity rate of 4.9%. 

        Metro Health has kicked off a Vaccine Incentive Program for people to receive a $100 gift card from HEB when they become fully vaccinated.  People who are eligible are more.
