With Texas still in the throes of COVID-19 crisis, it should come as little surprise that the coronavirus was the source of many of this week's top headlines.

The most-read articles in the Current this week covered the San Antonio archdiocese putting the kibosh on exemption letters for COVID vaccines, a website chronicling preventable COVID deaths and the news that all the kindergarten teachers at a local elementary school have tested positive for the virus.

Other topics Current readers keyed in on include the Alamo's debut of a gigantic LEGO model of the historic landmark, a new, LGBTQ-inclusive waxing salon and the appearance of John Wayne's daughter at a special event at the Briscoe Museum this weekend.
