Luis Arturo Hernandez, Sr.

Corrections Officer Art Hernandez died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty while assigned to the Rufus H. Duncan Unit in Diboll, Texas.

Officer Hernandez had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for 12 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
