Hidalgo County on Labor Day reported 23 coronavirus-related deaths.

“We mourn the tragic loss of nearly two dozen more of our friends, families and neighbors,” Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez said in a news release. “Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer and the fall represents an active time of year for our community -- when we return to school and work in force. But this fall is different and I urge residents to be mindful about avoiding crowds and staying home unless it’s absolutely necessary to leave.”

Since the pandemic started, 1,295 people in Hidalgo County have died as a result of the virus.
