82-Year-Old Female Patient Being Treated at UMH

May 8, 2020 /


Uvalde Health Authority (UHA) has announced that an 82-year-old female confirmed positive for COVID-19 is currently being treated at Uvalde Memorial Hospital (UMH). The individual resides in another county and will not be counted in Uvalde Healthy Authority’s Uvalde County case count. The Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) is handling the contact tracing for the county of residence, and management of the patient’s caregivers while she was in that county. 

Sentinel testing of UMH hospital personnel who have had contact with the patient is being performed out of an abundance of caution. 

Uvalde County has had only six positive COVID-19 cases since March 26, all of which have recovered, and no new positive cases since April 8. For additional information, please visit www.uvaldehealthauthority.org.
