Two children in Wharton County test positive for COVID-19

WHARTON, Texas — As of April 4, the Wharton County Office of Emergency Management has received 4 new reports of positive cases of COVID-19, in the city of Wharton.
These four, related to a previous case in Wharton, include two women as well as two children under age 18. This brings the total positive COVID-19 patients in Wharton County to 12.
As testing continues, our efforts to stop the virus must not slow down and we must continue to work hard to slow the spread in our area. The Executive Orders issued by Governor Abbott remain in effect statewide. The Governor has ordered Texans to stay at home, only go out and about for essential work or to retrieve essential goods.
This means that you may go out to the grocery store, seek medical care and continue the use of drive-thru, pick-up and delivery services for food and drinks from local restaurants. The order also mandates all non-essential businesses to close.
Wharton County OEM will provide updates at and on Facebook.
