Local officials who have been preparing for months to deal with the eventuality of a local COVID-19 outbreak will hold a press conference this afternoon.
They’ll discuss the latest local COVID-19 developments, according to a press release. No local confirmed cases of the virus had been reported as of the latest information released from the state health department, which is notified of all cases and reports them daily.
The City of Kerrville, Kerr County and Peterson Regional Medical Center will livestream the press conference at 2 p.m. at City Hall. Viewers can see the event as it happens on the city’s website and Channel 2.
The venue will be closed to the public, as many public spaces have been closed to minimize the risk for infection; but members of the press will be able to phone-in live with questions, according to a city press release.
