The five teams will include medical and support professionals that will assist with medical needs in hospitals throughout the state.

“The support from our federal partners is crucial in our work to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our communities throughout Texas,” Abbott said in a statement. “I am grateful for this ongoing partnership with the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy, and the State of Texas will continue to utilize every resource available to protect public health and keep Texans in every community safe.”

Hidalgo County remains in the state’s top 10 affected counties, according to Texas’ Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 dashboard.
