“14 Recoveries & 12 Additional Cases of COVID-19 in Ellis County”

June 2, 2020 - The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has notified the Ellis County Local Health Authority of twelve additional confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 and fourteen recoveries. This increases the countywide total to 352 cases of COVID-19, including 304 recoveries.

Ellis County will continue to report on COVID-19 cases as they are delivered to our Local Health Authority by DSHS. As of today, the Ellis County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has corrected a recent DSHS reported case of Alma to the appropriate jurisdiction of Ennis. Additionally, OEM has removed a DSHS duplicated report of three residents of Red Oak. The newly reported numbers reflect these adjustments. DSHS has reported 5,483 tests administered in Ellis County. These updates can be found on their website at .

 It is with a heavy heart that we report the 15th loss of life due to COVID-19. This loss of life includes a 73 year-old female of Pleasant Manor Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Waxahachie, TX. As a community please lift this family in your thoughts and prayers. Together we will continue to protect the vulnerable. OEM continues to work with local jurisdictions in monitoring these reported cases, and coordinating with the State of Texas to acquire additional personal protective equipment (PPE) and resources to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
