Edinburg Library employees create protective face shields using 3D printer

EDINBURG – Employees from the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library have always been available to assist in any crisis. To keep our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library had to close its doors. That did not stop the staff of the Edinburg library from trying to make a difference and supporting the City’s First responders and COVID-19 Task Force. They did what they do best and started researching ways to help. Through a grant a few years ago, the Sekula Library received a 3D printer and staff members are now using that printer to create 3D printed Face Shields to help keep Edinburg’s First Responders safe.

Doctors encourage patients to continue monitoring their health and not to delay necessary medical attention

EDINBURG — While hospitals across the country report a decline in patients admitted for strokes, heart attacks, emergency appendectomies and other urgent health concerns, physicians at DHR Health caution that the decline may be attributed to people’s fears about being admitted to the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. With policies and protocols in place to prevent disease spread within the hospital and clinics, doctors are reminding patients to pay close attention to their health and to contact their healthcare provider when experiencing unusual pain or symptoms.
