Texarkana Area COVID-19 ‘By-The-Numbers’ for October 5
(AP) — The Arkansas Senate has advanced a measure that would require an exemption process for workers who face a COVID-19 vaccine mandate from their employers. The vote Monday came during a special session that was called to redraw the state’s congressional maps. The measure from Sen. Kim Hammer, a Republican from Benton, says any employer that mandates the vaccine must also offer an exemption process that includes testing or proof of antibodies. If enacted, the requirement would end July 31, 2023, unless it is extended by lawmakers.
A new regional COVID Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Center opened up last week which is working wonders on patients who qualify for the treatment. It is already noticeably easing the strain on our local hospitals. Texarkana, Texas Mayor Bob Bruggeman spoke with Jim & Lisa on Kicker 102-5 this past Tuesday morning about the new center, that interview can be found here.
