What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure, range from mild to severe, and include:
Fever
Cough
Shortness of Breath
How does COVID-19 spread?

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
Community-based interventions such as social distancing and creating employee plans to work remotely can help slow the spread of COVID-19.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).


Travel information
If a person has recently traveled to a country with a sustained outbreak and has developed symptoms, they should call their doctor. Traveler information including returning from travel, canceling or postponing travel, air or cruise travel, and business travel can be found on the CDC website.

52 new positive test results for COVID-19 were reported in Hunt County on November 24, 2020. The Hunt County Health Department completed an initial investigation and determined that the individuals in question reside in Hunt County. The general information for the 52 new patients is on the following page. Hunt County will include up-to-date hospital numbers in the daily report.
Additionally, one additional death has been reported to the Health Department: Case No. 2567 – a 65+ female from West Tawakoni, ZIP Code 75474.
Each day, the County will release and post on its website a new set of numbers and charts showing the total number of cases, including the status and ZIP Codes of those cases. The state’s website includes a map which may be accessed at “dshs.state.tx.us/coronavirus” by clicking on the “Texas Case Counts” link. The State’s COVID-19 fatality numbers for Hunt County exceed the locally-reported numbers of deaths. The State’s reporting can be accessed by clicking on “Fatalities over Time by County” on www.dshs.state.tx.us/coronavirus/additionaldata. As of this evening, the state shows 56 COVID-19 fatalities of Hunt County residents. This divergence is due to the way the State calculates COVID-19 deaths, which in part uses death certificate information not yet available to the County. When Hunt County releases its morning reports, it will show the number of State-reported deaths (56), the number of deaths certificates filed with the County Clerk’s office (including non-citizen deaths) (52), and the number of County-citizen deaths that the County Health Department has been able to independently confirm (37).
