Washington County now has over 200 confirmed cases of COVID-19, although only about half of the cases are active.
However, county officials reported ten new recoveries, dropping the county’s active case count to 106. A total of 71 patients have recovered, while seven are hospitalized. Twenty-six have died from complications with the virus.
The number of positive cases at the Brenham Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (BNRC) remains unchanged at 110, made up of 87 residents and 23 employees. There are now 68 active cases, after two new recoveries were reported, bringing the facility’s recovered case number to 19. Two patients remain hospitalized, while 23 have died.
As of today, approximately 1,849 COVID-19 tests have been performed, including 223 tests at the BNRC. County officials noted that the increase in testing numbers at the nursing home was not due to any recent mass testing, but rather because of the county receiving more information on the total that had been tested in the past.
