Galveston County Health District today announces 16 new positive COVID-19 cases in Galveston County residents. This brings the county’s case total to 256.
To date, 2,082 Galveston County residents have been tested. This number does not include Galveston County residents who may have been tested outside the county. You’ll notice this is a drop from the 2,600 tests reported Sunday. Some tests were reported to the health district by labs initially as “pending”. When those test results came in they were entered in a second time as negative or positive, creating duplicates in the reporting system. Those pending duplicate test entries were removed between reporting periods on Sunday and Monday. Every person has been accounted for and every person has the correct test result.
This information is updated daily at 5 p.m. Please note, the health district is no reporting specifics of new cases related to age range and how the virus was contracted.
We’re also announcing 7 new recovered cases, bringing the total to 63
