COVID-19 started as a local crisis in a province in China. It has since become a global pandemic with major implications for even the smallest town in America. As a popular vacation destination and the home of the Nation’s Energy Port, the Coastal Bend will feel the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
To help our Corpus Christi friends and neighbors stay safe and keep educated about the coronavirus and its impact on the area, the editors at Corpus Christi Business News created this guide, which will be updated regularly with the latest news and links to the most important COVID-19 information.
