Shenandoah city officials and staff are actively monitoring news about the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) as it applies to the state of Texas, Montgomery County and Shenandoah. While much of the information about cases that are either presumptive or confirmed is covered by the HIPAA Act, we are getting daily information about numbers and cases in the area.
As of 4:30 pm March 10, Montgomery County has its first presumptive confirmed case of COVID-19, a man in his 40s who is a resident of Montgomery County. The County remains in Phase 2 of their Response Plan, with at least one person under investigation, based on signs, symptoms and/or travel history; there is no CDC confirmation of the disease at this time. Neither the identity of the patient nor the hospital where the patient is being treated is being released. Precautions are being taken to ensure the safety of other patients in the hospital.
