We currently have two patients in the hospital, and all other active cases are currently under in-home isolation and care.  Using the guidelines from the State of Texas DSHS, we currently have 2 county residents who have died as a result of their COVID-19 infections.  Our condolences and prayers go out to their families and friends.  We also have had two known deaths of patients who either died with COVID-19, but from another cause, or dies shortly after recovering from their COVID-19 infection.  Again, our thought and prayers go out to their families and friends during these very trying times.  All of these patients had significant medical problems and/or risk factors.  We have had 106 residents recover from this illness. We currently have significant evidence of community and institutional spread in Somervell County, as well as in our neighboring counties.  A large percentage of our community spread is between family members. ...

We currently have one patient in the hospital, and all other active cases are currently under in-home isolation and care.  Unfortunately, a patient died from COVID-19 related complications while hospitalized at Glen Rose Medical Center, and 3 other deaths have occurred, 1 with COVID-19 as the cause of death, 2 had causes of death unrelated to their COVID-19 infection.  All of these patients had significant medical problems and/or risk factors.  We would like to express our condolences to all the families affected by these deaths.  At some point one of the COVID-19 related deaths may be assigned to another county pending determination of the patient’s primary residence, per State of Texas guidelines.  We have had 84 residents recover from this illness.  We currently have one patient hospitalized with COVID-19 at GRMC.

PRESS RELEASE: Coronavirus COVID-19 July 21, 2020 Somervell County, Texas now has a total of 59 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 16 of our residents currently have active infections. We currently have one patient in the hospital, and all other active cases are currently under home isolation and care.  We have had 43 residents recover from this illness, including two that required hospitalization.  We also have several probable cases that are under further investigation.  These patients are in home isolation while being evaluated further.  We currently have limited evidence of community spread, however investigations are ongoing into several new cases.  Contact tracer activity is ongoing. Recently, Somervell County has fared well in comparison to some of our neighbors.  Our active cases had been dropping steadily.  Unfortunately, we are on a small island surrounded by communities with obvious community wide, ongoing spread.  This will continue to impact our community.  We need to continue to do our best to take care of each other, wash/sanitize our hands, wear our masks, practice respectful social distancing and look out for the vulnerable amongst us....

PRESS RELEASE: Coronavirus COVID-19 July 6, 2020 Somervell County, Texas now has a total of 27 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 18 of our residents currently have active infections. All active cases are currently in home isolation.  We have had 9 residents recover from this illness, including two that required hospitalization.  We also have several probable cases that are under further investigation.  These patients are in home isolation while being evaluated further.  Contact tracer activity is ongoing. All test results have been reported to Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Region 2/3 office in accordance with CDC and DSHS guidelines. Every local resident should continue to follow Open Texas guidelines and make their best personal decision to protect themselves, their families, and businesses as we continue to work through this pandemic together. In my opinion, people have a choice to make.  If COVID-19 infections continue to rise at this level, the government will have no choice but to shut more Texas businesses down.  The best way to avoid a repeat shut down is for people to wear masks, practice...
