WACO, TX — No, no one has the coronavirus at Hillcrest in Waco.

Kelly Crane from the McLennan County Public Health District said that rumor is just false.

In fact, she said that if any physician suspects their patient has the coronavirus, they have to contact the public health district, so they can contact the CDC for testing.

There is no ready available testing for the coronoavirus, so they CDC has to be contacted.
