Galveston County Health District (GCHD) this afternoon announces one additional positive COVID-19 case in a Galveston County resident. This brings the county’s case total to 18.

The case is:

  • A female younger than 10 years old with recent domestic travel. She is self-quarantined

For confidentiality purposes, the health district is not releasing additional identifying information.

“There is evidence of community spread in Galveston County. As we look at the pattern of testing, we can assume it’s everywhere. And you should assume that, too,” said Galveston County Local Health Authority Dr. Philip Keiser. “We’re reaching a point where knowing where someone who tested positive lives or shops is not going to protect you. You should assume it is everywhere and take proper precautions.”

GCHD is conducting epidemiological investigations and is working to quickly identify close contacts for all cases. The health district does not comment on case specifics, including the person’s city of residence or what businesses they may have visited.

Updates will be released as information becomes available.
