At this point, we know that there is community spread of COVID-19 in our area, and the specific locations and demographics of these patients is not necessary information that the public needs in order to protect themselves. Employers, family members, and other close contacts will be notified and monitored by the Texas Department of State and Health Services.

With community spread, all areas of the county should be considered a possible source of exposure. Everyone should be staying at home as much as possible, practicing social distancing when it is necessary to be out of the home, and practicing the hygiene measures that have been discussed previously.”
