COVID-19 Update - July 13th

According to the case line list provided by Texas Health Trace (THT) for July 13th, there are 1,637 total cases of COVID-19 in Ellis County, including 421 active cases and 1,196 recoveries. I am happy to report a reduction in the number of active cases as recoveries continue to rise across the county. As case numbers fluctuate in Ellis County, we want to remind Ellis County citizens that all case reporting is coming from THT. We understand the case numbers being reported may seem inconsistent with other sources of reporting and we sympathize with the frustration that may cause. At this time, we will continue to report case numbers as they are given to us by the State of Texas from THT. If anything changes, we will continue to uphold transparency and distribute the information to Ellis County citizens. 

Local health professionals and the Office of Emergency Management encourages residents to wear masks, practice physical distancing, sanitize regularly, and stay home unless it is necessary. Together, we can win the fight against COVID-19 in Ellis County.
