    Yesterday, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released COVID-19 “At a Glance” numbers. The numbers show that U.S. cases in 55 reporting jurisdictions (including Washing D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands and U.S. Virgin Islands) there were a total of 525,704 confirmed and presumptive positive COVID-19 Cases, and 20,486 total deaths.  

    The Austin American Statesman reported Governor Abbott will provide executive orders talking about reopening businesses in Texas sometime this week. The Governor continued stating it will be based on federal guidance. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick also spoke on Texas businesses adding, “we wouldn’t open everything immediately, but it will be done in phases… barring any unforeseen big spikes.”

So far, 61 people have recovered in Williamson County, and there have been four deaths due to this virus.
