On 4 July 2020, Caleb Wallace helped organize The Freedom Rally in San Angelo. People at the event carried signs that criticized the wearing of masks, business closures, the science behind Covid-19 and liberal media.
According to the story, Wallace organized the group "The San Angelo Freedom Defenders". He was critical of Covid-19 protocols implemented by the San Angelo ISD going so far as sending a letter to district officials. He also spoke to San Angelo city officials about Covid-19 policies.
Jessica Wallace said her husband took livestock medication to treat his symptoms and refused go to a hospital.
He instead took high doses of Vitamin C, zinc aspirin and ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine used for livestock that officials have urged people not to take for Covid-19.
He was taken to an emergency room on 30 July. Since 8 August he had been unconscious and on a ventilator.
Wallace's wife said her husband "was an imperfect man but he loved his family and his little girls more than anything”.
