Due to the recent increase in new and active COVID-19 cases in Lamar County, the Paris-Lamar County Health District does not have the capability, staff, or resources to maintain current monitoring and reporting activities. We can no longer support the volume with a projection of an even more significant surge to come.
We will be working in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide a new county COVID update format. Please note that this transition will take a few days as we will post an update as soon as possible. The Health District will continue COVID testing. Please call our office for testing information.
If you have tested positive, you and your household members must stay home a minimum of ten days from the test date and make sure you are 24 hours entirely symptom-free before leaving your home. If a confirmed positive exposes you, you must quarantine for 14 days.
It is a critical time for our community, and I can’t stress the importance of implementing personal safety measures. This virus is no joke! Wear your mask; people wear your MASK!
