Panola County Judge LeeAnn Jones said three more positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed since Tuesday, bringing the county’s total cumulative cases to 188.
Jones said one case was from a nursing home and two cases were from the public.
Jones reported one additional COVID-19 death and several additional cases early Tuesday. The Tuesday cases included three nursing home residents, two members of the public and four nursing home employees.
Not counting Wednesday’s newly-reported cases, Jones said 72 of the county’s cases and 11 deaths are from Briarcliff Skilled Nursing Center; 34 of the cases and seven deaths are from Panola Nursing and Rehabilitation; 62 of the cases and three deaths were in the general community; 15 of the cases are from Tyson (that number is only Panola County residents; at least 22 total cases have been reported from the Carthage plant); and two of the cases were from UT Health.
Jones said there were 24 recoveries at Briarcliff, 10 at Tyson and 8 from the public. It’s unknown how many recoveries there are from Panola Nursing, Jones said.
