Last updated October 27, 2020. To the left are the latest numbers for Region 8 from the Texas State Department of Health Services.
Notification Process: When a positive test result is received, Region 8 begins a contact investigation (CI). When the CI is complete, Region 8 epidemiologists will notify the Preparedness and Response (PAR) team. PAR staff will contact the county Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) or County Judge to share the necessary information. Once EMC or County Judge is notified, PAR will notify the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) District Coordinator of the confirmed cases. Once notifications are complete, the case is added to the Region 8 case count totals.
When a patient has recovered from COVID-19, the PAR staff will notify the EMC or the County Judge and request that the COVID-19 Alert Flags that may have been placed in the dispatch center be removed.

Sanitary Sewer Blockages
With the growing concerns over the COVID-19 virus we understand that everyone has kicked their normal disinfecting and cleaning habits into high gear. We are asking that you refrain from flushing baby wipes, cleaning wipes, paper towels, and even the so called “flushable wipes” down your toilet. These products cause serious issues with the sanitary sewer collection system throughout the city.
The public works crew will be patching and filling potholes in all areas of town over the next several weeks. Safety is a top priority for our workers on the streets. Please be patient, slow down and watch out for the workers.
