Two new cases of coronavirus/COVID-19 have been recorded in Schleicher County, according to the San Angelo Health Department. The two involve two Hispanic females, one in her 60s , the other in her 20s.

The new cases raise to 14, the total number of cases reported in the county since the first case was discovered on June 12th.

The San Angelo Health Department no longer categorizes the means of transmission, due to the increased number of cases being experienced in the recent surge.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Friday, June 26, reinstated a number of COVID-19 related restrictions including banning of alcohol sales by bars to patrons inside their establishment. Take out sales is still permissible.

The governor said that restaurants may remain open for inside dining, but only at 50% rated capacity.

Outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people must be approved by local officials, Abbott said.

The governor also ordered that all rafting and tubing companies must close.

Meanwhile, the City of Eldorado announced that it will lock the doors of City Hall, beginning on Monday, June 29th, due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. The lockdown mirrors an earlier one implemented by the city. City utility customers may pay their accounts online, or by check through the city's dropbox, located on the west end of City Hall.
