Commissioners hold first in-person Court since March, discuss rise in COVID-19 cases in county

Coryell County Commissioners held their first Commissioners’ Court before an in-person audience since March 16 on Monday with COVID-19 prevention protocols in place.

The court required temperature checks at the entrance for all attendees, social distancing and face coverings as part of the county’s continued efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19, which was the primary topic of Monday’s meeting.

Coryell County Emergency Management Coordinator Bob Harrell noted that COVID-19 cases continue to grow across the county as more businesses open and people begin to venture out more.

“As we evolve in this situation, we’re starting to see an upsurge in numbers,” Harrell said. “I highly suspect that our numbers are going to continue to rise.”

County Judge Roger Miller noted that Coryell County has seen an increase of 71 percent in the past 66 days.
