Unity Walk postponed

With rising numbers of COVID-19 in Young County, Mt. Zion has decided to postpone the Unity Walk, originally scheduled to take place on the square Saturday, June 27. Andi Tate, a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, confirmed that the event has been postponed after a spike in COVID-19 cases and will be pushing it back to a later date.

Graham City Manager Brandon Anderson said that this was an event that a lot were looking forward to and the church had worked hard to establish this event.

“Mt. Zion Baptist Church had done a great job of putting together what we all felt like was a good event, a Unity Walk that was going to be held around the downtown square here in Graham,” Anderson said. “But due to an abundance of caution, Andi Tate has been my contact person for this event, Mt. Zion Baptist has chosen to postpone that event until a further date. More details will come out later, but for the time being with everything, cases escalating here in Young County they have just chosen to postpone that event.”

Young County Local Health Authority Dr. Pat Martin reported during a city leader Facebook livestream on Friday that there are currently 21 active cases in Young County. That is an increase from 12 reported by Texas DSHS on Thursday. This includes nine positive tests confirmed as of 1 p.m. today.

A new date has not been announced at this time.
