February 22, 2021 - In a letter from DSHS to Judge Evans and copied to Mayor Schauman, we were advised that hospitalizations in TSA P, which includes Bandera County, are steadily declining. Businesses in Bandera can return to 75% occupancy and 51% bars can reopen at 50% occupancy. In addition, the restrictions on elective surgeries have been lifted.
Last updated February 12, 2021. To the left are the latest numbers for Region 8 from the Texas State Department of Health Services.
Notification Process: When a positive test result is received, Region 8 begins a contact investigation (CI). When the CI is complete, Region 8 epidemiologists will notify the Preparedness and Response (PAR) team. PAR staff will contact the county Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) or County Judge to share the necessary information. Once EMC or County Judge is notified, PAR will notify the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) District Coordinator of the confirmed cases. Once notifications are complete, the case is added to the Region 8 case count totals.
When a patient has recovered from COVID-19, the PAR staff will notify the EMC or the County Judge and request that the COVID-19 Alert Flags that may have been placed in the dispatch center be removed.
