Weekly Cases and Active Cases 
Weekly updates are made to the total case count as new positive results are received; however, depending on the illness onset date and/or test date given in the report, the case may no longer be infectious. If a case is not considered infectious, it will not be included in the active case count number. Department staff can be reached at 325-643-3793 to answer any questions regarding how case stats are calculated.

Brownwood Health Department Update

On August 11, 2020, the Brownwood/Brown County Health Department received 6 positive COVID-19 test results, 6 negatives, 13 recoveries, and 1 death.

There are currently 95 active cases, of which 4 are hospitalized. The new positives include 4 PCR tests and 2 antigen test. The total positive PCR tests for Brown County is 402.  The total positive antigen/antibody test is now 87.

Please note we will not be reporting pending case counts. With an increase in the use of rapid tests (antigen) results are almost immediate which does not require a “pending” category. When results are near-instant, cases received are often more than the previous pending count, often causing confusion from readers. The Brownwood/Brown County Health Department is also not notified of all testing being done, which does not allow an accurate count of the true pending cases.

The current totals for COVID-19 testing in Brown County are below:

     3442    Tested
     2938     Negative
        489     Positive Cases (PCR Tests)
           87     Positive Antigen/Antibody

The Brownwood / Brown County Health Department is proactively asking residents to visit Texas Department of State Health (DSHS) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) websites for the most current information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID‑19).

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
