Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management (RCOEM) has received six new confirmed cases from Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
Four cases are in Rockwall. One case is in Royse City. One case is in Fate. Two people are in their 20’s. One person is in their 30’s. One person is in their 40’s. One person is in their 50’s. One person is in their 60’s.
RCOEM updates the COVID-19 graphic when we receive confirmed COVID-19 cases from the Rockwall County Health Authority who is notified by DSHS. RCOEM has been coordinating with the City of Rowlett Office of Emergency Management and has found that 9 COVID-19 cases were reported to the City of Rowlett’s Health Department (they contract with the Garland Health Department) and not DSHS (Rockwall’s health department). Therefore, these cases were not initially included in the Rockwall County cases count. RCOEM is now updating the graphic to include the 9 cases in Rowlett that were not previously reported. Rowlett cases in Rockwall County will now be reported through the appropriate avenues. RCOEM would like to thank Rowlett Emergency Management for their assistance.
