MONDAY UPDATE: 2 more local COVID-19 deaths reported; 8 additional confirmed cases

Authorities report there have been 146 victim recoveries and there are 116 active cases

Texas Department of State Health Service over the weekend reported to Shelby County officials there have been two additional deaths attributed to COVID-19, bringing the county's total to 10 deaths.

Shelby County Office of Emergency Management Coordinator on Monday morning said DSHS also reported eight new cumulative COVID-19/coronavirus cases in the county. That brings the county's cumulative total to 272 cases since the first one was reported in March.

Of the 272 cumulative cases, there have been 146 victim recoveries and there are 116 active cases.

“DSHS also reports that of the 272 cumulative cases,  18 of those cases are “lost to follow”…meaning, DSHS has not been able to contact them to follow up on their recovery,” Shofner said. “These will continue to stay on the active case list until DSHS notifies us otherwise.”
