For those of you who may be confused about the Governor’s Order please see Tina Pettit Crowe from Live Oak County Health Department’s comments below:

“The rules by the Governor concerning face masking issued in his Executive Order GA 29 and demonstrated by Texas Department of Emergency Management are as follows- County Judge may request lifting the mask rule if the county experiences 14 days with continuous count of 20 “Actives” or under. The County Judge must submit this request to TDEM. Then, if approved, the county must stay at or below 20 cases to remain exempt. If the case count rises above 20 for 14 days the mask rule is reinstated and the county must wait 30 days to re-qualify for the exemption. This exemption DOES NOT remove the rules for social distancing and ALL other rules in the current Governors’ Orders for individuals and businesses.”

As of this minute, Live Oak County has 22 active cases. These active cases are derived from the individuals that are confirmed positive and probable as well as those that are not yet considered recovered but not in quarantine due to them not being fever free for 5 full days and symptom free for 2 weeks.

Governor Abbott Issues Executive Order

Implements Statewide Essential Services And Activities Protocols

City Of George West

The Officials for Live Oak County have confirmed a case of the COVID-19. The Health Department has had this subject under quarantine since the test date. The subject is doing fine. The experts were telling us that this could spread to all communities.

Continue with Social Distancing and Proper Hygiene.

Live Oak County Health Dept. and Emergency Management

George West Police Department

With the announcement that Live Oak County has a confirmed positive case of COVID-19, some might be asking: “What do we do now?” The answer is quite simple… continue practicing social distancing and proper hygiene. We all knew this could happen and now that it has, it just reiterates the need to do both. Don’t take this virus lightly and take heed to the recommendations and instructions your federal, state, county, and local officials are providing. It takes all of us to change the course. They are working hard to make decisions that may not be popular but are necessary. Work with them, not against. Together, as a community, we will continue to be resilient.

I usually look in the mirror each day and tell myself I will honor the oath I took in becoming a law enforcement officer and I will take a stand on what that badge symbolizes, no matter what the consequences may be. Since this pandemic, I also ask myself if I will do my part today to flatten that curve. At night I look in the mirror again and can confidently say I was righteous and did what was asked of me. I hope each of you can say you did what was asked of you as well!
