The Office of the Governor and Francisco Cigarroa, MD, of UT Health San Antonio released a new Spanish-language public service announcement (PSA) urging Texans to work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Buenas tardes, yo soy el Doctor Francisco Cigarroa, del Centro Medico de la Universidad de Texas de San Antonio. Tengo un mensaje muy importante para reducir el contagio de COVID-19. El mensaje es sencillo, por favor lávense las manos regularmente, quédense en la casa todo lo que es posible; si tienen que salir de la casa, por favor usen una máscara y si tienen que estar al lado de otra persona, por favor a lo mínimo quédense a seis pies de esa persona. Trabajando juntos podemos reducir el contagio de COVID-19 en Texas; trabajando juntos, podemos proteger nuestra familia y cada persona en este gran estado de Texas. Muchas gracias.
