Hidalgo County has surpassed the 1,000 mark for total confirmed cases of COVID-19 after county Judge Richard F. Cortez reported, in a news release, 83 new cases over the weekend.
“This is not a moment that I like seeing,” Cortez said in the release. “But it is yet another reminder of how active this virus is. Community spread is alive and well in Hidalgo County and we need to understand the dangers of that.”
