Ellis County COVID-19 Update - July 30th 

Ellis County reports on COVID-19 cases as they are distributed to the Local Health Authority from the Texas Health Trace (THT) platform. In order to uphold transparency today’s report includes corrections made by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in the case line lists received from the State. These corrections include removing duplicated cases, removing case counts that were outside the county’s jurisdiction, and adjusting cases to the appropriate city jurisdiction. 

It is important to remember that every number presented in these reports are reflective of someone’s neighbor, friend, and loved one. It is with a heavy heart that we report the loss of life of a 54-year old male resident of the City of Waxahachie due to COVID-19. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who have experienced loss during these challenging times. 

According to the case line list provided by THT for July 30th, today’s report includes a total of 2,223 recoveries of COVID-19 in Ellis County. Additionally, there have been a total of 2,344 reported positive cases in Ellis County including 99 active cases (95 confirmed and 4 probable). According to the Texas Department of State Health Services Dashboard, there have been 20,141 tests administered in Ellis County. We appreciate your understanding and your partnership during this time in keeping Ellis County healthy. #TogetherWeWin
