Public health is a hot-button issue in Texas, and the state’s public libraries are no exception.
The state’s library system, the Public Health Department, has been dealing with a large number of health-related outbreaks since 2016, when the Texas Department of State Health Services first started reporting a number of suspected cases of Legionnaires’ disease.
The department has since identified more than 1,600 suspected cases, including more than 800 cases in the city of Houston.
These cases have been linked to Legionnaires, a bacteria that has been known to cause serious illness.
These new cases are causing a huge amount of concern among libraries, which have had to work overtime to keep the public health situation under control.
As of August 1, 2017, the state library system reported at least 6,919 cases of legionnaires’ among library patrons.
The number of cases has since been cut in half and is currently at around 1,300 cases.
The library has had to reduce the hours that patrons are allowed to use the library and has had a “zero-tolerance policy” for anyone with suspected Legionnaires in the system.
“Public health is not an easy job,” said John Miller, a library librarian in the Houston area who has worked on health-sensitive topics for more than 30 years.
“The public health system is trying very hard to keep us all safe.
The problem is that there are so many cases that the public is getting more confused than they need to be.”
The problem, Miller said, is that libraries are not doing their job, particularly when it comes to health-critical information.
“I’m a big believer that libraries have to be proactive and take steps to make sure we have our hands clean, we have everything in place,” Miller said.
“It’s really hard for a library to keep a staff up and running 24 hours a day.
They have to have an online system where you can be up and online as soon as they have to.
But I can’t do that.
If I have to go on a call, then I can say, ‘Hey, I have this information.
This information is going to be out here, I can provide it if you need it.'”
Miller is not alone in his criticism of the health-safety situation in the library system.
Many in the public have voiced their frustrations over the health of libraries, particularly those located in Houston.
A recent survey of public library patrons in Texas found that only one in five felt comfortable going to the library at all hours of the day and night.
Miller and other library patrons say that they are frustrated by the lack of information and information sharing, particularly around the public cough and flu vaccine.
The CDC’s response to the pandemic has been a major reason that the library has been working overtime to reduce staff hours.
However, Miller says that the lack “of information is really bad for people who are vulnerable.
They are not able to do the things they need help with.”
The library says that it has made changes to its staffing policies to make the health department’s job easier, but Miller says the libraries have been slow to implement them.
“They have not really started to change their policies,” Miller told Breitbart News.
“When they were in the situation in 2016, they made a number to help the libraries stay open more.”
Miller has called on the state health department to investigate the health situation in Texas libraries.
“What they are doing is taking steps to not allow staff to do their job.
They want to give people the false impression that they have not had a case of Legionnaire’s,” Miller continued.
“That’s a lie.
They know it’s happening.
They need to get rid of that.”
A spokesperson for the Public health department declined to comment on Miller’s concerns, saying that it was not in a position to speak to the matter.
The Public Health department’s efforts have also not been without its own difficulties.
Miller was frustrated with the fact that the state has not issued a report on the number of confirmed cases of the bacterial infection, and he said that it could be a good time for the state to do so.
“There needs to be a public health agency in Texas that is actually accountable to the public,” Miller explained.
“We need to know how many people are sick and how many have died, because it could change the future of public health.
It’s a real big deal.”
