Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez announced the appointment of new Economic Development officials.
A press release names Laura Matamoros as the new Economic Development Director and Hilda Escochea Salinas as the Assistant Chief of staff.
Residents of Hidalgo County should be assured that active measures have been in place since November to monitor all developments that may impact the region as it relates to the Coronavirus, County Judge Richard Cortez said during a media availability on Wednesday.
Based on that monitoring, Cortez and officials with the Hidalgo County Health and Human Services Department said it is business as usual in the county. The most effective prevention measure that residents of the county can take to protect themselves from Coronavirus or infections from any other respiratory virus is good hygienic practices, especially the frequent washing of hands.
