Eastland County COVID-19 Update, October 2, 2020

Here is the report with the numbers received as of October 2, 2020

  1. Number of positives cases since March: 270
  2. Number of positive cases still in quarantine: 32
  3. Number of deaths: 1

Many of you have asked about close contacts and self-quarantine. If you have close contact with an infected individual, that is 6 feet or less, and are not wearing an appropriate face covering, and the contact was for 15 minutes or more, then you should self-quarantine for 14 days. A negative test does not reduce the quarantine days. False negatives can occur.
