Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

From the Office of County Judge, Jerry Bearden:

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) have been closely working together with numerous state health agencies to provide the public with educational materials on how to stay safe with regard to COVID-19. 

At this time, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, however, there are precautionary measure that will help to minimize or even avoid the contraction of the coronavirus:

  • Frequently wash hands with soap for a duration of at least 20 seconds;
  • Cover mouth with a clean tissue or inside of elbow when coughing or sneezing;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Stay home if flu-like symptoms are present, as well as, drink plenty of fluids;
  • Visit local clinic as necessary.

For more information about the prevention and treatment programs, please visit the Center of Disease Control website – www.cdc.gov – or the Texas Department of State Health Services website – www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus .

It is critical that we AVOID panic!  Please continue to check this website for local updates, should there be a need for Mason County to take further action. 

 

This past week has been confusing with regard to COVID-19 in Mason County. Several reporting entities have posted very high numbers of active cases in our county. After several phone calls to the Judge’s Office from concerned citizens, we placed phone calls to the state and discovered that there had been a ‘data dump’ in the state’s reporting system. The state has assured us that they are working on this issue.
While we understand that there are multiple sources that report COVID-19 numbers, we encourage you to visit www.co.mason.tx.us for the official report from our team. The data presented here is methodically gathered and reported with confidence.

854 Tested 
6 Results Pending
748 Negative Results
100 Positive Results (89 Recovered/Quarantine Complete; 2 Fatalities;
Known Active Cases)

These numbers possibly reflect fewer cases than the state's report (DSHS) due to patients completing quarantine requirements.

If you received a positive test result from an 'out of county' facility, please provide certified results to Dr. Horne at Frontera Clinic or to Judge Bearden at the Mason County Courthouse.
