    Thank God for President Trump and his swift attention and actions to combat COVID 19

    I understand that business and people are suffering from health and money-wise. But I believe that opening the river & water park will bring more sickness. We don’t know where these people are coming from. I also know that we have low numbers because we are doing the right to distance and take proper hygiene. I do know however we do need to open. But we were late in the game going forward with this virus. Some have been dealing with this since January. We have not. But we can not risk any more death from this terrible virus. Without a vaccine, no one is really safe. My opinion only. I’m here with my brother & mother who is 91 and in hospice. I have asthma myself. I hope we do not do anything that will be too soon but on another hand when will we all be safe?

  3. Thank you for this report. It is comforting to realize that many have been cured. When all we heard were people dying without much hope it was very depressing. Mr Trump & Mr Pence have gone to great troubles to care for us all.
    God Bless All

      Emilio Lozano, resident of Comal County. Yes, it is good to see many of these test come back negative. But let’s not forget to continue to take this seriously, I am glad our area has not been affect as tragically as other city have . And please don’t thank the President, him and his administration have down very little to help, and have only spread misinformation.
