Wichita County Leaders Plan After Seeing Spike In COVID-19 Cases

With new cases of Coronavirus spiking across Texas and in Wichita county, officials in the county are watching closely and what actions they can take to help stop the spread.

Tuesday saw the highest single day growth in cases at 29.

“The blanket order right now for the state of Texas is not working and sure is not working for our community so we’ll see where we are at here in the next week or so, see where the numbers go and we’ll kind of react from there,” said Wichita Falls Mayor Stephen Santellana.

In a news conference Tuesday, Wichita County Judge Woody Gossom announced the commissioner’s court will not make wearing a mask mandatory, but cities could make stricter orders.
