National Guard conducts COVID-19 tests in Fisher and Stonewall

TEXAS NATIONAL GUARD PERSONNEL GET PREPARED TO ADMINISTER COVID-19 TESTS AT STONEWALL COUNTY COURTHOUSE. WEDNESDAY MORNING.

Texas National Guard personnel are crisscrossing the state to provide Texans — especially those in rural areas — with increased COVID-19 tests in efforts to avoid a surge of coronavirus infections as the Governor continues to lift restrictions throughout the state. The Guard’s mobile testing site was in Stonewall and Fisher counties earlier this week and plans to make return visits to conduct additional tests in the weeks to come.

Residents in Stonewall County made their way to the town square in Aspermont to be tested for COVID-19 on Wednesday. There were around 10 tests administered between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Stonewall county. A total number of tests could not be obtained for Fisher County, as Friday’s testing at the Fisher County Law Enforcement Center in Roby had not yet been completed.

Governor Gregg Abbott addressed all Texans on Tuesday where he announced an expansion of relaxed restrictions on businesses in the state. With most restaurants re-opened dining rooms over the weekend, Abbott gave the green light for hair, nail, and tanning salons as well as barbershops to open as early as Friday.
