The officials with the Bowie County and Cass County Joint Operations Center have released updated numbers for the area, including the number of cases considered “recovered”.
Bowie County Emergency Operations Center reports five new cases of
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) for a total of 27. Cass County has one new case for a total of five
positive cases confirmed, with two of those recovered.
Robin Betts, the Emergency Management Coordinator in Cass County requests that healthcare
facilities who are testing patients contact him to report positive cases. It is important to note
that positive cases will be reported in their counties of residence, not where they were tested
or where they are employed.
It is important during this time to remember the need for blood is not diminished. Please
continue to donate blood during this crisis, as accidents and emergencies are still happening,
and the need for blood is still present. LifeShare Blood Center is relying on donors to visit its
network of donor centers across Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. Each donor center is
operating on extended hours due to the COVID-19 crisis. To schedule a donation, call (903)
