COVID-19 Appears In Erath County

Erath County now has a confirmed COVID-19 case locally. A statement from County Judge Alfonso Campos says the patient is an adult male living here in the county who was tested last week and notified of the positive result this past weekend. A reminder that if you believe you are sick, you should call your doctor or emergency room first. Do not just show up unannounced. Stay home except to get medical care. Wear a facemask only if you are sick. Cover your coughs and sneezes with the bend of your elbow. Wash your hands often and clean high-touch surfaces in your home often.
