Hidalgo County on Sunday reported 28 coronavirus-related deaths.

“I decided to lift the county’s Shelter at Home mandate when new safety orders go into effect one minute after midnight tonight, with added safety measures for our Winter Texan guests arriving in the county,” Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez said in a news release. “But these numbers should offer a warning that this deadly disease hasn’t gone away and we should all continue to exercise caution when leaving our homes.”
