Texarkana Area COVID By-The-Numbers for July 7
The numbers in the Bowie, Cass, and Miller County areas went down a little overall after that spike we saw last week, hospitalizations are up just a bit in our zone F in Texas. The real question will be what numbers come from the July 4th holiday weekend. We will find that out next week.
The Texas side has done pretty well on vaccinations, Arkansas has finally surpassed the 1 Million mark for vaccinations which is good but still lagging behind most other states.
Free vaccines are available all over town, I believe every pharmacy, clinic and urgent care has them now, pick one, make an appointment and go get it done if you are so inclined.
