Titus County COVID-19
Titus County cases of COVID-19 Tuesday are now 511, with three confirmed deaths. Titus Regional Medical Center Monday was reporting 2,309 tested with 1,736 negatives, 461 positives with 112 pending. There were six hospitalized. Those numbers represent Monday’s patients in the hospital.
Judge Lee’s numbers include all Titus County residents testing positive nationwide. For example, a person from Titus County tested in Texarkana, Dallas, or San Francisco. TRMC is reporting total positives from tests that were administered at the hospital or family care center and will possibly include test results for patients, not Titus County residents. For example, a person tested from outside of Titus County like Mt Vernon, Pittsburg, or someone from out of state.
