CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District is seeing a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. Health District officials expect the number of cases to continue to rise until the end of January.  Research from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi indicates the peak of this fourth wave should occur on January 30.

The public health district urges everyone to wear a mask when around people outside of their family members, social distance, limit exposure to congregate settings and wash their hands often.

Residents are urged to get tested for COVID-19 at the first sign of symptoms. Early testing leads to faster treatment and reduces the number of patients admitted to local hospitals. Testing is provided FREE to the public.
