New News!

The CDC issued new guidance yesterday saying individuals who are fully vaccinated no longer must wear a mask indoors or outdoors. We have been doing that for a while already here in the Ark-La-Tex but it's nice to see them catch up.

As a friendly reminder though, a private business or property owner does have the legal authority to require you to wear a mask in their store, restaurant, etc. That is their right under the Constitution. If that angers you just don't go there anymore. That right of choice is yours as well.

If you're still in search of a vaccine, CHRISTUS St. Michael now offers vaccines with the Spirit St. Michael Mobile Unit. For additional information, call 903-748-8573. Collom & Carney Clinic is now administering the Pfizer COVID vaccine for ages 12 and up. No appointment is necessary.
