The Brazos County Health District reported four new cases of COVID-19 on Friday, raising the total number of confirmed positive cases in the county during the pandemic to 181.

No new deaths have been reported since last Saturday, and the county’s death toll from the disease remains at 16.

Officials said Friday that 77 people had recovered from the illness, and 88 cases remained active. Eight Brazos County residents remained hospitalized with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus on Friday.

Brazos County Alternate Health Authority Dr. Seth Sullivan said Thursday that the decreasing number of new cases “demonstrates the social distancing measures you’ve been participating in are working.”

Thirty new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Washington County on Friday, raising the total number of cases in the county to 108. Fourteen people had recovered, according to data posted on a county website, and 11 people had died. Eighty-three cases remain active.

Grimes County officials confirmed a 13th case of COVID-19 on Friday after a man in his 50 tested positive for the illness. Four Grimes County residents have recovered, officials said. One person, an inmate at the Wallace Pack Unit state prison, has died, and another inmate continues to be isolated. Another resident remains hospitalized, according to county figures.

The number of confirmed cases in other Brazos Valley counties remained unchanged from the day before: Burleson County was reporting 11 cases; Milam County was reporting 13 cases with one death; Leon County remained at five cases; and Robertson and Madison counties were reporting two cases each.
