CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo spoke about the city's recent spike in COVID-19 cases during her weekly meeting with KRIS 6 News at Noon anchor Jeff Dubrof.

"It’s obviously very disappointing we are seeing this uptick across the city," Guajardo said. "We’re going to look back to see how do we reintroduce and reemphasize to our our residents that we have to stay vigilant of this and we have to stay really attentive to again what we are doing and who we are around."

Guajardo also said mask-wearing in public may be a solution for those who want to.

"If you are comfortable still wearing a mask of course we encourage you to do so," she said. "We’re having another uptick of more cases by the day. It’s very concerning, but we’re looking at more protocols again."

Guajardo also discussed the start of the Games of Texas and its potential for public health and any safety measures for planned events for public health for the city.
