This last month we have been consumed with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a great shock to our whole way of life, with devastating consequences to the health of many people and to our businesses and our economy.
More testing is key, including the serology (antibody) test to tell if we’ve had the virus to enable those with immunity to get back to a more normal routine. The other is proving viability of early treatments, such as the malaria drug, other antiparasitics already in use, current viral medication, and of course a vaccine.
Through all of this, membership renewals have remained steady. South Texans have been through hard times before and I know that this too we shall overcome, stronger and able to move forward, maybe scarred, but ready to make a comeback!
I would like to thank all of our members for their various ingenuous ways of helping each other through this difficult season and coping in optimistic ways.
We, from STPRA, wish you and your families a very blessed Easter!
Until next month,
