MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX — The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, Ascension Providence, Baylor Scott & White and the Family Health Center have formed a leadership team to plan for local response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The McLennan County Leadership Response Team was created to work and plan together on a local response to reports on the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

The team will meet weekly as a group. The team says they are actively monitoring patients for risk factors and working to ensure local health care systems are prepared to respond to the situation as it unfolds.

The leadership team says if you are healthy, your risk for contracting coronavirus is relatively low and recovery is high.

The same steps people can take to stay healthy during the flu season will also protect you from many viruses, including COVID-19.
