Lawmakers Send Request For Surge Team To Nueces County

State Representative Todd Hunter has sent an email to the Texas Department of State Health Services and Texas Department of Emergency Management asking for a surge to be sent to Nueces County to help with testing and comprehensive medical needs.

Rep. Hunter sent the notice after conferring with State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa and fellow State Rep. Abel Herrero, who are all in agreement with the request.

Nueces County Judge Canales and Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb were also notified of the request for assistance from the lawmakers.

The request comes as hospitalizations and new cases continue to rise both in our community and around the state.

This is a developing story and will be updated throughout.
