City grapples with how much action is too much

In tense meeting last last Wednesday morning the Eastland City Council reaffirmed its support of the Centers for Disease Control guidelines and activated the city’s emergency management plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The move, which came in front of more than 50 residents, came on the heels of a city-backed recommendation that restaurants and local churches limit, or suspend, activities for two weeks as a way to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


According to Administrator Ted Matthews of Eastland Memorial Hospital, as of Tuesday morning, there were two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Eastland County with more tests out that should hopefully be in today. If you feel that you need to be tested you have to go to your PCP where you will be asked questions and evaluated. If your Primary Care Provider feels you need the test, you will be sent to the hospital to be tested.
