According to the graphic, the first five cases of positive cases in the county are travel related, however, the most recent confirmed positive of the female in her 70s has no known exposure source which means there is evidence of COMMUNITY SPREAD in Angelina County. It can be concluded that we’re going to see these numbers increase steadily over the next several weeks.
City officials want to stress that people understand what a dire situation this truly is and that they change their behaviors to keep themselves, their loved ones and the community safe.
