The COVID case report for October 1, 2020 is as follows:
- Number of positive cases since March 2020: 268

There have been several new cases in one day (October 1). We continue to ask everyone to use caution, wash your hands, wear face coverings, and keep the six-foot distance. There have already been positive Influenza cases reported. It is important to get your Flu Vaccine soon
There has been concern about different reports on the deaths due to COVID in Eastland County. I receive a report each day during the work week from the Department of State Health Services., they report no deaths. I have record of only one death. I will post only the positive cases and the active cases, as well as deaths that I receive from DSHS as well as from the local health care facilities (EMH and the Eastland County Clinics).
