From the blog
COVID-19 has made this Independence Day, unlike others. This virus is deadly, and it spreads easily. Yet, it presents a strange challenge because people who carry the virus may not feel sick but can still spread the virus to others. As a result, health leaders are strongly urging us to party with our own households -- not with extended family, friends, or strangers. Good advice. Stay #WacoSafe!
As your household parties, turn on the TV for some fireworks. The Waco City Cable Channel will replay the 2019 H-E-B Fireworks Extravaganza for everyone to enjoy virtually from the comfort and safety of their homes. The fireworks show, along with music from the Waco Community Band, will air at 9 p.m. Friday, July 3, and again at 9 p.m. Saturday, July 4. WCCC-TV can be viewed on Spectrum Cable Channel 10 and in HD on Grande channel 810. It can also be viewed online at the WCCC.TV website.
What we learn from contact tracing
Mayor Kyle Deaver shared Wednesday about what COVID-19 contact tracers are discovering in their conversations with those infected with the virus. See a short video of the mayor’s comments.
