Release from Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management:
All testing of residents and staff is complete. However, they are still receiving a few test results.
To date, there are a total of 34 COVID-19 cases, 20 residents, and 14 staff. Of these 34 cases, 19 were asymptomatic and showed no signs of having COVID-19.
We also regretfully inform you that two additional residents of the Broadmoor Medical Lodge who tested positive for the virus have passed away. The deceased were in their late 80’s and 90‘s, and COVID-19 was a contributing factor in their passing. The family and friends are in the thoughts and prayers of Judge Sweet, Office of Emergency Management, and all of us at Rockwall County.
Broadmoor continues to work closely with the local health authority, the County Judge, and the Office of Emergency Management. The total number of positive cases in this update does not match the graphic update on Facebook or the County website. This is because Broadmoor has shared real-time information with us, and the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) data lags a bit behind. Also, all positive staff does not reside in Rockwall County.
DSHS will not include those in Rockwall County’s aggregate number.
