Masks not mandatory, unless requested by business

MARTIN COUNTY – Life on the streets of Martin County is ‘business as usual’, but before entering a place of business patrons should notice if a sign requiring face coverings is posted.

The Governor’s Office in Austin released an executive order last Friday requiring the use of face masks. The order has caused mass confusion for smaller counties that have not been affected like the higher populated areas.

Martin County Judge Bryan Cox released a statement earlier this week clearing up the confusion: “Concerning the use of face coverings in the State of Texas, as was quoted in the Executive Order, face coverings are required if a County has over 20 active cases, and if six feet social distancing can-not be maintained.”

‘Silver bullet’ saves life of Martin County resident

MARTIN COUNTY - What some are calling a controversial treatment for COVID-19 used by an Odessa doctor, Richard Bartlett, who calls it the 'silver bullet' has been making headlines lately.

Many in the medical profession are not convinced since there is no scientic proof.

Richard Bartlett has been a general practitioner for 28 years. He believes the inhaled steroid, Budesonide, helps alleviate the Cytokine storms COVID patients may experience.

In May, Bartlett explained in an article, “I had a patient with a 50-year history of smoking, bypass surgery and they felt better immediately," he said. "It’s a medicine that’s been out for 25 years but I’ve never seen work so good, it’s like this medicine was made for this pandemic.”
