Harris

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said she’s grateful for the governor’s mask mandate but that a stay-at-home order is needed. She wants Gov. Greg Abbott to return control of the county to the local government.

“We don’t have room for incrementalism, we’re seeing these kinds of numbers, nor should we wait for all the hospital beds to fill and all these people to die, before we take drastic action,” Hidalgo said.
