“3 Additional COVID-19 Recoveries in Ellis County”

April 17, 2020- I am proud to report three additional recovered cases of COVID-19 in Ellis County. This increases the countywide total to 20 recoveries.

These recoveries include a 59-year-old female of the City of Ennis, a 22-year-old female of the City of Red Oak, and a 39-year-old male of the City of Waxahachie.

 Additionally, The Local Health Authority has identified one new confirmed positive case of COVID-19. This case includes a 63 year-old female resident of the City of Ennis.

 Ellis County Emergency Management continues to urge residents to social distance, wash your hands frequently, and avoid touching your face. The virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.

 For these reasons the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
