That's up 17.18% from the previous week's tally of 20,830 COVID-19 doses administered.

As of March 9, 6.94% of people living in Grayson County are fully vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers someone fully vaccinated two weeks after they've been given a single-dose shot (Johnson & Johnson) or a second shot (either Pfizer or Moderna).

Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order to lift the state's requirement for facial coverings in public places will go into effect Wednesday, March 10.

Abbott pointed to the rising pace of coronavirus vaccinations, particularly of older adults, as one of the factors in his decision to lift the mask mandate and other pandemic restrictions.
