7/21 COVID-19 Update

Ellis County reports on COVID-19 cases as they are distributed to the Local Health Authority from the Texas Health Trace (THT) platform. According to the case line list provided by THT for July 21st, there have been 2,017 total cases of COVID-19 in Ellis County. I am proud to announce there are 1,650 recoveries in Ellis County with a remainder of 346 active cases (340 confirmed and 6 probable). Ellis County has administered 18,425 tests according to the Texas Department of State Health Services Dashboard

The Ellis County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has worked diligently to uphold transparency by removing duplicated cases, removing case counts that were outside the county’s jurisdiction, and adjusting cases to the appropriate city jurisdiction in the case line lists received from THT. Additionally, residents will see a change in the gender breakdown of the COVID-19 report, as OEM has made a correction to the recently released update.

We appreciate your support, feedback, and understanding as we work together to create a safe and healthy community. We have updated the way we report our COVID-19 cases to ensure the information reported to Ellis County citizens is transparent, understandable, and accurate. Together we win. 

Todd Little, Ellis County Judge & Emergency Management Director
