The Abilene Taylor-County Public Health District has received four additional positive test results for COVID-19, bringing the total positive test count for Taylor County and Dyess Air Force Base to seven. 

The four new positive test results are as follows:

  • Female Disability Resources, Inc. (DRI) resident in her 40s. She is currently being cared for at Hendrick Medical Center.

  • Female DRI healthcare worker in her 50s. She has been quarantined at home since 3/26/20 following exposure to the first positive case at DRI.

  • Female DRI healthcare worker in her 60s. She has been quarantined at home since 3/26/20 following exposure to the first positive case at DRI.

  • Female in her 20s (unrelated to DRI cases). She was admitted to Abilene Regional Medical Center on 3/21/20, and discharged to home quarantine on 3/27/20. This case appears to be travel related.

The Abilene Taylor-County Public Health District continues to urge area residents to protect themselves, and our medically fragile community members by:

  • Practicing social distancing, and staying home as much as possible

  • Washing or sanitizing hands often

  • Covering sneezes and coughs

  • Avoid touching your face

  • Staying home if you are sick

  • Routinely cleaning commonly touched surfaces

If an individual feels they may be showing symptoms for COVID-19, it is important they first call their medical provider or the Abilene Taylor-County Public Health District at 325.692.5600 for screening and further instruction. Please do not arrive at a medical office, facility, or hospital without first making contact by phone and receiving instruction.
