Crownover Hopes Comal County Can Reopen for Business Soon
Comal County confirmed two new COVID-19 cases Tuesday, both in households with two previously confirmed COVID-19 patients, but Precinct 4 (Canyon Lake area) Commissioner Jen Crownover said the trend is nonetheless positive.
“These are the first in a handful of days so the trend is a positive one,” she posted on her Facebook page. “We’re keeping an eye on the governor’s office. Hopefully in his next update, he’ll feel that things are safe enough to start reopening more of your businesses, and Comal County will follow suit. I know times are really tough right now, and the hardest part of my job at this point is seeing folks struggle, and that I can’t do more to help ease the pain of all this.”
This brings the number of cases reported in the county to 45.
The patients are a Garden Ridge resident in their 30s and a Spring Branch-area resident in their 50. They are self-isolating.
Also, the county confirmed the recovery of two more patients, bringing the total to 32. With six deaths, seven cases remain active among county residents, two of them hospitalized and the rest isolated at home.
