Comal County Public Health Director Cheryl Fraser warns residents to stay home and maintain social-distancing after three more cases of COVID-19 were reported today in western Comal County, bringing the total number of positive tests to 15.

One of the residents lives in Fair Oaks Ranch and the other two in the Bulverde area.

One of the patients, a Bulverde resident in their 80s, is hospitalized outside of Comal County. The others, both in their 50s, are self-quarantined.

The hospitalized patient did not leave the county before becoming symptomatic but did have recent contact with other people. The other two remain under investigation.

“We know COVID-19 is spreading in our community, and regardless of the details of how each individual contracted it, we all need to be following the governor’s orders by staying home and maintaining social distances,” Fraser said.
