Taskforce to refocus efforts in keeping a tabs on positive cases

Local public officials through its COVID-19 law enforcement task force are refocusing their restriction measures to keep an eye on the Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Eagle Pass Mayor Luis Sifuentes presented an item during a city council meeting held on Tuesday which sought to stop the one person per family restriction at shopping locations and also focus efforts on those individuals who have tested positive.

Sifuentes explained that the decision to lift the one person per household rule at shopping locations was to free up officers from the Task force to address issues related with people who are under quarantine.

Last week, it was announced that three people who tested positive had been caught leaving their homes and not following the quarantine restrictions set upon them by law.

Those individuals will be charged for not following the orders.

The charge is a third degree felony punishable with up to 10 years incarceration and $10,000 in fines.

The Task force will be overseeing about 84 people who remain positive with the COVID-19 Virus and others that might turn up positive as well.

There are over 450 tests pending at this time.
