Someone may have gone to visit a loved one and infected them. That someone is still wandering around San Angelo, maybe serving food or liquor or working in your favorite retail. Wear the mask!

People keep thinking these numbers are inflated...and everything is a "conspiracy"....They dont want to listen. Very frustrating.

This didn't all just happen overnight. These victims deserve the same transparency as other positive cases.

My mom was at Arbor terrace last year sometime & I can actually see it spreading there very easily.

I thought the masks were supposed to prevent this? Hmm.

According to the political puppets that need you all to wear a mask, apparently it’s not your right to not wear a mask. Yet, it’s still difficult to figure out why they are so desperate to get as many people as possible in face masks unless this isn’t about logic at all, but control.

Just how much enslavement will it take to get Americans to wake up?

What if in actuality that masks, when worn by the general population, become vectors for COVID-19? We likely have virus-contaminated face masks worn by people with absolutely no concept of face mask hygiene and viral contamination. They are unwitting agents for spreading this pathogen.

What’s more important than keeping masks over Americans’ faces is keeping the veils over their eyes.

What will it take for these conspiracy theorists to let go of their stupid ideas that this is a hoax?! Every time I go somewhere, I see a plethora of dumb people either not wearing a mask or wearing it improperly. Maybe they will kill each other off, but I doubt it. Lots of innocent people will die as a result of their clinging to their so-called freedom to remain mask-free. Darwinism is alive & well in San Angelo.

Folks...... this is all just such horse crap. Just today, I've had 2 people who both went to ER with sore throat, ear ache and headaches. ER staff demanded Covid tests be performed and both came back negative. The doctors refused to test for the Flu or Strep when both patients asked to be tested, saying that due to their symptoms, they were both being labeled as Covid patients and to go home and quarantine for 14 days......... There's 2 that went toward that count for today that a test was negative for the virus when administered....... Bull Crap, Bull Crap, Bull Crap....... They are playing the public like puppets with all this fear factor B.S.......

Careful Doctor, that kind of talk will get you censored. Now kneel before the ordained public health “officials”. Common sense has no place here. “Logic is an enemy and truth is a menace.” “ You are obsolete Mr. Wordsworth...and the State has no use for your kind!”

I had to take the test and must have waited in line 5 hours. It was slow going. I usually don't like to just sit in my car for 5 hours. I mean I could but that doesn't make any sense.

What would the neighbors say? They would be peeking through the blinds wandering...what is he doing? has he finally gone off the deep end?

No , apparently he is just sitting in his car. Why doesn't he go inside? Why would he just sit in his car for 5 hours?

So, we got up there and this nurse stuck a q tip up my nose and made me hang in there for 15 seconds.

The only consolation I guess is that she was a cute nurse from Shannon and told me to hold it for 15 seconds, so maybe there was a little Freudian psychology that accidentally kicked in.

Then I tested negative but still had to sit at home for 14 days.

It's just a democratic hoax, Herman Cain is proof of that, moreover just count the coffins. Those that want to claim it is nothing have that right while those that trust the medical professionals take precautions and treat the world wide hoax as though it is a real threat because it is.
