5/21/2020 Information from Coleman County Judge Billy D. Bledsoe

DSHS informed local health authority, Dr. Atwood, that both cases have been cleared.

I have read additional information in regards to the CDC beliefs on how the virus is spread. They continue to say, as from the onset, the virus is mainly spread through person to person contact from an infected individual through respiratory droplets in the air from a sneeze, cough or talking. The spread by surface contact is still possible, but is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. The CDC still recommends routinely cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, but the most important measures would be to continue the practice of hand washing and safe distancing.

Coleman County, once again, has no active case of the virus.
