Mayor Dee Margo is asking El Pasoans to stay home and socially distance as COVID-19 cases surge in the area. In a news conference yesterday, the mayor said significant spread is coming from family and non-family gatherings as almost two-thousand cases were reported yesterday. Margo warned that large-scale retailers including Walmart, Target, and Home Depot have also become a hotspot for virus spread. The mayor said he has reached out to the stores' corporate offices to ask that they limit occupancies.
