    Williamson County has received notification of the eleventh COVID-19 death in the county. The resident was a male in his 50s. Privacy protection laws only permit the release of limited patient information. Williamson County is unable to release any additional patient information.

    "It is crippling to get the news that the Coronavirus has claimed the life of another one of our residents. We stand with those who have lost a loved one to this deadly disease. It is in memory of those who have passed that we should make it a point to follow proper hygiene, consider wearing a face-covering, and try to minimize our exposure to those that are part of our vulnerable community,” said Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell.

      

    If you have symptoms of respiratory illness including cough, fever and shortness of breath, please contact your health care provider. It is important to call ahead before arriving at a clinic, urgent care or emergency department to avoid potential spread.
