    Was he self quarantined when he got tested and waiting for results? Your article makes it seem he got tested and went about everyday life. Now with positive results he is staying at home? Why not before?? Need some clarification here!

    Mr. Vela knowingly was out and about knowing he was feeling ill and suspected he could have been affected he proceeded to get tested for the Coronavirus days before attending City Council meeting…..he failed to self-quarantine himself, he has in my opinion committed a horrible injustice….that is a Criminal act and he should be punished for it. He has put our lives in danger as well as our families lives.
    I work for the City of Mission and we as employees are extremely scared that his negligence and lack of consideration for others will cause city employees loss of work and put our families in extreme danger.
    I think that this is his fault and the city should not deduct employees their well earned time…..sick days, comp days, vacation days etc….
    This is very stressful and depressing that is something we do not need in our lives as we are dealing with trying to keep healthy and those around us healthy as well. God Help Us Al…..Stay strong Mission and All The Rio Grande Valley!!!!!!!
