COVID-19 Resources in TX-31

With our country facing a pandemic and many folks wondering what the next day brings, it is now more important than ever for folks to know where and how to get the help and information they need.


As a family practice doctor, it has been my duty to inform and care for my patients for 30 years. As a Congresswoman I will continue working for all Central Texans when elected.

What to Do

Self Isolation


Helps keep you and others safe by preventing you getting sick or spreading the virus to others

Avoid Crowds

Gatherings over 10 people have been prohibited across the state

Don't Hoard Supplies


These practices only hurt others. Buy what you need and leave some for the rest.

Severe Symptoms?


Seek medical attention only if you have severe symptoms or a medical emergency. Currently there is a mass shortage of COVID-19 tests, available hospital beds, and PPE or personal protection equipment for healthcare professionals.

Shop Locally


Remember to support local businesses; while larger stores are low on stock, you may find items at local stores like La Plaza Market in Georgetown, the Jarrell Supermarket, Killeen Nutritional Center, or order curbside from a local restaurant.
