In a response to a comment on Todd Little’s Facebook page, he replied”I only post this information so folks understand there is really no easy solution. Like I said what I hear from hospital admin is concern about the future. It’s hard to make decisions when the outcomes are unpredictable. I’m sure Abbott is trying to do the best for Texas but there is no one solution fits all across Texas. I don’t know why we can’t have outside events if we are distancing? What they try in Dallas or Tarrant County would never be the same for Ellis County.”
Judge Little has come under a lot of criticism from Ellis County residents from the earlier shutdown. He’s said he now feels like businesses can be responsible in their decisions on how to operate safely.
