Press Release Coronavirus COVID-19 1-4-21

Posted on Jan 4 by

PRESS RELEASE: COVID-19 UPDATE January 3, 2021 Happy New Year to everyone!  Here’s hoping that 2021 is much better for us than 2020! I am changing how the numbers are being reported for our county.  I am sure that this will upset some people, but this is a needed change.  Unfortunately, the massive amounts of data, complicated by incomplete data, has made it impossible for me to continue to vouch for the information that I am providing to our County’s leaders, as well as it’s residents.  In order to have more timely reporting, as well as more accurate numbers, I will be reporting numbers provided to me by the State of Texas.  I will continue to monitor cases diagnosed at GRMC, as well as other local cases, as that data is presented to me. The spread of COVID-19 has leveled off here in Somervell County.  We have stayed fairly stable, at between 40-55 active daily cases during the last 2 weeks. In our county, we have widespread viral activity in families, institutions, and work places.  Social events continue to...

Posted on Dec 21 by

PRESS RELEASE: COVID-19 UPDATE December 21, 2020 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! As of 6 PM on 12/18/2020, Somervell County Texas registered a total of 738 cases of COVID-19, the number of residents currently with active cases is 37.  There is one patient currently hospitalized with COVID-19 at Glen Rose Medical Center.  Recently, we have continued to have a steady stream of inpatient COVID-19 patients.  Using the guidelines provided by 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, differ from the numbers that I am reporting.  I am continuing to work at reconciling those differences, and I will report them when they change. The spread of COVID-19 seems to have leveled off a bit here in Somervell County.  In our county, we are seeing spread of the virus within families, peer groups and some neighborhood clusters.  There has been moderate institutional spread noted in the last 3-4 weeks as...

PRESS RELEASE: COVID-19 UPDATE December 4, 2020 As of 6 PM on 12/3/20/2020, Somervell County Texas registered a total of 615 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the number of residents currently with active cases is 50.  There are no patients currently hospitalized with COVID-19 at Glen Rose Medical Center.  Recently, however, we have had a steady stream of inpatient COVID-19 patients.  Using the guidelines provided by 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. During the last two weeks we have added around 200 cases in Somervell County.  Most of this occurred prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.  Since Thanksgiving, there has been a small dip in new cases, but it appears that those numbers are starting to rise again.  Currently, we are seeing significant...
