COVID-19

A Special Thank You from County Judge Todd Little

"I want to sincerely thank each and everyone involved in this 2-year fight to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our community. To our medical partners - Baylor Scott & White, Ellis County Emergency Management, MDLabs, and the Texas Division of Emergency Management - our community will forever owe you a debt of gratitude. To each of our local jurisdictions, we thank you for your dedicated advocacy for our residents in spite of the political, economic, and medical challenges you have each faced. To our local officials - Dr. Leigh Nordstrom, Representative Brian Harrison, Representative Jake Ellzey, and all of our county commissioners and city council members - we could not have been able to provide all the best treatment options to our citizens without your commendable leadership and involvement. And most of all, to all our residents, thank you for your continued trust, confidence, and persistence as we have navigated through these uncharted waters together over the last two years."
