Washing of the hands is the number one way to prevent the spread. With the continued opening of Texas and our great city please continue to be mindful of others and be great friends and neighbors. Sporting events are soon to open and I also urge everyone to abide by the guidelines set forth by the governor for those events. Please continue to support our local restaurants and businesses that are beginning to reopen as well.
