HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houstonians have a deep love for Gallery Furniture owner Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale, and now he has a message for them.

"Spread facts, not fear!"

It's a phrase that's to the point and also the focus of a new PSA featuring Mattress Mack and Dr. Umair Shah of Harris County Public Health.
