Venturing out?

Uptick in Covid cases and hospitalizations in the Brazos Valley. Brazos County has a total of 781 cases, 483 active cases, 273 who have recovered, 16 who are currently hospitalized, and a total of 25 deaths. We have a younger demographic afflicted compared to some other communities with those aged 20s-50s accounting for 66% of the cases. Uncontrolled diabetes is a major risk factor for severe consequences requiring ICU care. If your hemoglobin A1C is above 7%, you fall into this high risk group (if you’re a diabetic, you should know your A1c by heart). Mortality risk Is 85% or higher for those in the ICU, intubated and receiving mechanical ventilation. Venture out safely:
