Earlier today the Texarkana Joint Operations Center reported treatment of 9 positive cases from Bowie County, 2 positive cases from Miller County and 1 active positive case from Cass County. Remembering that Texarkana Texas is a medical hub for a larger region our local Health Authority, Dr. Matt Young said in an earlier address that there is well over 150 cases in our area that are being treated as “presumptive”, meaning they have not received test results to indicate otherwise at this time.
