Hale County, Texas -

The Plainview / Hale County Public Health Authority, Sergio Lara, M.D., has issued a health advisory to the citizens of Plainview and Hale County.

The advisory is in effect until further notice:

  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores and pharmacies.
  • The virus can be spread even before an infected person shows symptoms. Wearing a simple cloth face covering can help slow the spread of the virus by people who don’t even know they have it.
  • Cloth face coverings can be fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost. Visit to find instructions on making your own face mask.
  • Practice Social Distancing - maintain 6-feet apart from other people when in public.
  • STAY HOME – it is the best thing you can do to keep from getting the virus and spreading it to others.
  • Do not purchase surgical masks or N95 respirators intended for medical use. Keeping our healthcare workers safe is critically important because they are on the frontlines taking care of us.
