On March 28, 2020, at 7:19 pm, the following COVID-19 positive patient information was removed from the Matagorda County total after we learned the information was reported in both Matagorda and Wharton counties. Since the patient’s residence and quarantine address is in Wharton County, it was determined that the following COVID-19 case should be counted and managed by Wharton County: 3/27/2020; she is a female, she is between the ages of 50-55; she is at home and did not report travel.
Matagorda Country has a total of 17 Positive Cases, 223 Negative Cases, and 117 Pending Cases.
