MAYOR’S MESSAGE MEMORIAL DAY 2020 | 05/23/20 |

Mayor Tracy Craig, Sr. Headshot

LET’S WORK TOGETHER THIS Memorial Day

(En español)

Memorial Day 2020 means more to me than ever, as we remember those who have sacrificed for us, and also face the COVID-19 pandemic. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of now, two, in Titus County who have passed because of this terrible disease. So my personal message, and plea, to each of you is to help us deal with COVID-19 in our community. Great fear comes from the unknown; and trusting erroneous information and rumors on social media leads to wrong decisions.

Please help me share these facts with your friends, family and followers:

  • COVID-19 affects every patient differently; some never show symptoms; some become critically ill.
  • Most patients won’t need to be hospitalized, and can quarantine at home. A team of 20+ nurses at TRMC are dedicated to checking in on patients daily. There will be support and help.
  • Symptoms can appear at any time and worsen quickly.  Danger signs are: trouble breathing, chest pain, confusion, bluish lips or face.  
  • If these symptoms appear, call 911.  
  • Do not be afraid to call 911. Our Paramedics are here to help you and to save lives. They have nothing to do with the law or immigration.
  • The same goes for the hospital; doctors and nurses are here to help you and save lives. 
  • If you or a household member has not been tested, but has symptoms of COVID-19, take it seriously. Get medical help immediately.

Your leadership at the City, the County, TRMC and the large employers and small businesses take COVID-19 seriously. We are in a surge of cases TRMC predicted for May. Now we must all work together to take care of each other, and save lives. And remember: wash, mask and social distance.

God Bless You,

Mayor Tracy Craig, Sr.

Mensage del Alcalde


Nuestras condolencias y oraciones están con las familias del condado de Titus que han fallecido a causa de esta terrible enfermedad. Así que mi mensaje personal, y súplica, a cada uno de ustedes es ayudarnos a tratar con COVID-19 en nuestra comunidad. El gran miedo proviene de lo desconocido; y confiar en información y rumores erróneos en las redes sociales conduce a decisiones equivocadas.

Por favor, ayúdame a compartir los hechos con tus amigos, familiares y seguidores:

  • COVID-19 afecta a cada paciente de manera diferente; algunos nunca muestran síntomas; algunos se enferman críticamente.
  • La mayoría de los pacientes no necesitarán ser hospitalizados, y pueden hacer cuarentena en casa. Un equipo de más de 20 enfermeras de TRMC se dedican a registrar a los pacientes diariamente. Habrá apoyo y ayuda.
  • Los síntomas pueden aparecer en cualquier momento y empeorar rápidamente.  Los signos de peligro son: dificultad para respirar, dolor en el pecho, confusión, labios o cara azul-morados.
  • Si aparecen estos síntomas, llame al 911.
  • No tengas miedo de llamar al 911. Nuestros paramédicos están aquí para ayudarle y salvar vidas. No tienen nada que ver con la ley o la inmigración.
  • Lo mismo ocurre con el hospital; médicos y enfermeras están aquí para ayudarle y salvar vidas.
  • Si usted o un miembro del hogar no se ha hecho la prueba, pero tiene síntomas de COVID-19, tómelo en serio. Obtenga ayuda médica de inmediato.

Su liderazgo en la ciudad, el condado, TRMC y los grandes empleadores y pequeñas empresas se toman COVID-19 en serio. Estamos en una oleada de casos que TRMC predijo para el mes de mayo. Ahora todos debemos trabajar juntos para cuidarnos el uno al otro y salvar vidas. Y recuerda: lavar, enmascarar y guardar distancia social.

 Dios los bendiga,

Alcalde Tracy Craig, Sr.
