Another COVID-19 Case Confirmed on the Northside of the Lake
Another person who lives on the north side of Canyon Lake has tested positive for COVID-19, Comal County officials said today, Saturday, April 4.
One of the other cases is in New Braunfels and one is from the Smithson Valley area near Bulverde.
Two of the patients — one in their 30s and another in their 70s — are self-quarantined while one in their 40s is hospitalized outside the county. At least two of the cases are considered community transmission.
Today marks the third consecutive day of three new cases confirmed.
A Canyon Lake man in his 70s died at home of COVID-19 on Thursday, March 26. On March 30, the county reported that his widow, who lives on the north side of the lake and also is in her 70s, tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-quarantined. She is the eleventh confirmed case in Comal County. Her husband was the tenth.
At that time, first responders to the scene were sent home to self-quarantine. They work for the Comal County Sheriff’s Office and Canyon Lake Fire/EMS.
The couple traveled out-of-state before the man began experiencing COVID-19 symptoms last week. He also tested positive for the flu and strep throat.
As of Saturday morning, Comal County’s Office of Public Health has received reports of the following test information:
- 225 tests conducted
- 21 positive tests
- 150 negative tests
- 54 results still pending
