The virus known as COVID-19 that began its insidious creep into our society during January has now gained a solid foothold on American soil terrorizing and threatening the entire nation. But how did it get here? What’s its backstory?
The following is a timeline for the development and spread of the upper respiratory disease.
In late December of 2019 — remember then, when the Cowboys smoked the Redskins to end the season on a high note — it was reported that several people in Wuhan, China were treated for pneumonia after allegedly visiting a live animal market in the city.
On January 11, 2020, China indicated a 61-year old man who had been afflicted with pneumonia after going to the animal market died from the novel coronavirus.
By January 21, the United States had acquired its first case of COVID-19. The person was a 35-year old man from Washington state who had traveled to Wuhan.
The World Health Organization (WHO) proclaimed its sixth international public health emergency on January 30.
In February, WHO changed the name of the nascent disease from the novel coronavirus to COVID-19; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) affirmed the first local transmission case in the U.S., and America had its first death attributed to the novel coronavirus.
WHO classified the coronavirus-2019 a pandemic on March 11.
President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on March 13 and Gov. Greg Abbott followed suit announcing a statewide public health disaster.
On February 7, travelers were quarantined for two weeks at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.
A North Texas man from Colin County tested positive on March 8 after returning from a trip to California. The first coronavirus-related fatality in Texas was reported on March 15. The victim was a man in his 90s and a resident of Bay City.
Gov. Abbott issued an executive order on March 19 prohibiting the gatherings of 10 or more people and closed schools, gyms, dine-in restaurants and bars. The initial order was in effect until April 3. He also created another executive order on March 26 requiring air travelers flying into Texas from Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and New Orleans to be quarantined for 14 days or the duration of their stay.
On March 31, the governor extended social distancing guidelines through April 30.
Val Verde County Judge Lewis Owens issued a Declaration of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency on March 16. He amended the declaration on March 23 ordering residents to shelter-in and remain six feet apart when encountering people during essential activities such as purchasing items at the grocery store.
The Texas Department of Health Services (DSHS) reported five cases in Val Verde County as of 12:30 p.m. on April 2.

SRE reitera llamado a evitar viajes no esenciales, particularmente, entre México y Estados Unidos
El Gobierno de México exhorta nuevamente a todas las personas mexicanas a evitar viajes internacionales por motivos recreativos o de turismo, en particular, entre México y Estados Unidos. Lo anterior, en línea con las disposiciones emitidas para mitigar la dispersión, transmisión y complicaciones del COVID-19 en la comunidad. También, se subraya que las medidas de contención, así como la progresiva reducción de frecuencias y rutas aéreas, han generado múltiples complicaciones logísticas, mismas que continuarán en las próximas semanas.
A los connacionales que residen en el exterior de forma permanente, en especial en Estados Unidos, se les solicita cumplir las instrucciones de las autoridades locales y se recomienda ampliamente permanecer en casa y evitar todo tipo de desplazamiento internacional, incluido a México. Se exhorta a aquellos mexicanos con residencia permanente en Estados Unidos, que buscan reunirse con sus familiares, a detener temporalmente los viajes no esenciales hacia nuestro país. De igual forma, se han establecido medidas de contención en ambos países, en fechas recientes, incluyendo limitaciones en la frontera terrestre y la reducción de conectividad aérea.
La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores continuará brindando toda la asistencia y protección consular a su alcance, bajo las actuales limitaciones de movimiento y acceso.
La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores, a través del Consulado de México en Del Rio, monitorea el desarrollo de la situación y publica recomendaciones a través del portal oficial https://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/delrio/, Facebook: ConsulMex.DelRio y Twitter: ConsulMexDelRio.

SCHOOLS TO REMAIN CLOSED THROUGH MAY 4, 2020
In a press conference held yesterday afternoon, Governor Greg Abbott renewed and expanded the previous directive to minimize social gatherings and minimize contact with people who are not in the same household. “Social distancing is our best tool in the fight against COVID-19, and the actions we have taken thus far have proven to be effective in limiting the spread of this virus,” said Governor Abbott. “Now it is time to redouble our efforts to reduce further exposure as much as possible and flatten the curve.”
Included in this Executive Order, was a directive for schools to remain temporarily closed to in-person classroom attendance through May 4, 2020. SFDRCISD will remain strong in its commitment to support home-based instruction for our students at every grade level. In addition to the current services we provide, we will focus on efforts to expand our outreach to students who may not have the means to access technology or internet services. We will do this by:
1. Delivering notifications to every home where parents of students have not established a connection with their child’s case manager. This effort is to locate students who have not made contact with the school, and to quickly establish the alternative means in which they will receive their instructional packets and resources. (Parents of children who have not received their instructional packets must contact their child’s school as soon as possible).
2. Expanding opportunities for students to access free Wi-Fi service and borrow technology devices so that they, in turn, can access the District’s home-based instruction portal, complete their lessons and submit their work so that they can receive grades and/or credit for their coursework.
Coordinated efforts by our District’s Technology Department are already underway to establish hot-spots across our community so that students can access free internet services in the next few days. Because technology devices are limited, we will prioritize the distribution of the devices based on need (students who do not have access to a computer or laptop at home), the order in which the device reservation was made, and availability. Reservations and distribution of technology equipment will begin on Monday, April 6, 2020. Parents are encouraged to call the SFDRCISD Technology Helpdesk at (830) 778-4357 for more information.
Our Board of Trustees and SFDRCISD team would like to thank our parents for encouraging and supporting their students as they work to complete their Home Based Instruction assignments.
Together, we are better!
