I worked as a Texas State Trooper in the Highway Patrol Division from 1985 until retiring in 2010.  While at DPS I promoted up through the ranks to Highway Patrol Lieutenant and have been assigned to duty stations in Freer, Hillsboro, San Angelo, El Paso and the final duty station of Waco for the last 9 years of my career.  While in Waco I was the contact person  for the United States Secret Service when it came to providing security at the western white house in Crawford for President Bush.  I was the Regional Canine Coordinator, Accident Reconstruction Team Coordinator, Recruit School Instructor, RADAR and Laser Instructor and was responsible for 7 Sergeant areas comprised of about 70 Troopers, 7 Sergeants, 6 canines and handlers and numerous non-commissioned staff. 
I was also the State Disaster District Coordinator for Region 4A while stationed in El Paso and the Assistant District Disaster Coordinator for District 6A while stationed in Waco.  Emergency Management  was one of my functions at the state level (More on that later)
Have been the Emergency Management Coordinator for Kerr County and the City Of Ingram since November 2015 and am responsible for the Kerr County/City of Kerrville/City of Ingram Emergency Management Plan, Code Red, CERT ( Community Emergency Response Team), Kerr County Search and Rescue Team and other disaster related duties as assigned.

Dub opened with 59 cases in Kerr County. As of 9/26/2020 71 cases Of covid-19, of these 21 have recovered one death.
It is a known fact that as more people that are getting tested there are more people will turn up positive,
Dub was saying the recommendations he advised were  the same as DSHS.
  • Wash hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same.
  • If no soap and water are available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, knobs, and other places touched often.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

DSHS also recommends that you start practicing social distancing. Social distancing involves staying away from other people to avoid catching or spreading illness. It's a fancy term for avoiding crowds and minimizing physical contact. This could mean avoiding concerts or weddings, skipping the handshake, and/or staying at least six feet away from others.

Additionally, the CDC recommends using simple cloth face coverings in public to help slow the spread of the virus:

Someone ask about Texas DPS officers testing positive. Looking on internet I found DPS claimed two workers were tested positive

in the Austin office.

Dub said the Emergency Management team was using the finance logistics operations planning method of handling this virus.

He used the acronym FLOP. He thinks as more cases are found Admittance will increase is Hospitals.

When ask if taking your temperature going to a event was a good idea, he said Its a great Start!!!!  He said that using scare tactics would also be helpful if this get worse.
