As of Friday, there are 561 recoveries, 33 active cases and 48 fatalities in Washington County due to COVID-19. The Joint Information Center (JIC) last reported 505 recoveries, 40 active COVID-19 cases, and 47 fatalities in Washington County on Sept. 11.

The JIC has changed the frequency of press release reporting on COVID-19. The local Public Health Authority, the Office of Emergency Management, the city of Brenham, Washington County EMS, Brenham ISD and other area medical providers will continue to monitor COVID-19 data and release relevant information through their respective offices. Future press releases with COVID-19 case counts will come from the Washington County Judge John Durrenberger on an as-needed basis.
