PRESS RELEASE: COVID-19 UPDATE November 22, 2020 As of noon on 11/20/2020, Somervell County Texas registered a total of 415 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the number of residents currently with active cases is at yet another record high of 67.  2 patients are hospitalized at this time, and the rest of the active cases are on home isolation.  Recently, we have had as many as 5 patients hospitalized with another 4 or 5 needing transfer to higher levels of care.  Using the guidelines from the State of Texas DSHS, we currently have 4 county residents who have died as a result of their COVID-19 infections.  You may notice that the “official” state numbers for active cases, total cases, and deaths, and the numbers I am reporting, differ most of the time.  I am continuing to work at reconciling those differences, and I will report them when they change.  We have had 344 residents recover from this illness. Unfortunately, our number continue to increase at far too rapid of a pace.  Currently, we are seeing significant spread of the virus...

PRESS RELEASE: COVID-19 UPDATE October 23, 2020 Somervell County, Texas now has a total of 230 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the number of residents currently with active cases is 15.  One of the patients is hospitalized at this time, the rest are on home isolation.  Using the guidelines from the State of Texas DSHS, we currently have 3 county residents who have died as a result of their COVID-19 infections.  You may notice that the “official” state number, and our number differ at this time.  I am continuing to work at reconciling those differences, and I will report them when they change.  We have had 212 residents recover from this illness. I wish I did not have to report such a significant increase in our numbers.  There is not a specific pattern to this increase.  Almost all are related to community or family spread.  No institutional spread has been seen in Somervell County recently.  I am concerned that “Covid fatigue” is allowing people to become too complacent in what they are doing to try and protect themselves and others. ...
