Nine new COVID-19 cases announced Friday


Friday morning the City of Pampa and Gray County were notified by the Texas Department of State Health Services of nine new COVID-19 (Coronavirus) cases in Gray County. These new cases bring the overall total to 1,366.

With these new cases today the overall totals read like this: 1,366 total cases, 1,228 recoveries, 117 active cases and 21 COVID-19 deaths.

Please remember the City of Pampa and Gray County fall under Trauma Service Area A. The number of hospitalized patients in Trauma Service Area A exceeds 15% as a percentage of total hospital capacity.

As a result of these percentages, according to Governor Abbott’s Executive order GA-32, all restaurants, retail stores, office buildings, manufacturing facilities, gyms and exercise facilities and classes, museums and libraries in all counties in Trauma Service Area A are required to return to a maximum 50 percent occupancy levels.

The order remains in place until such a time as Trauma Service Area A has seven (7) consecutive days in which the number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity is 15 percent or less.

As always, take all the necessary precautions to make sure you and your families are safe.
