SC Emergency Management No Longer to Report COVID-19 Data

September 14, 2020 - The Shelby County Emergency Management office reported Tuesday, September 8, 2020 its last COVID-19 report which included a cumulative case count of 442 for Shelby County.

According to Kerri Shofner, Emergency Management Coordinator, "After a lengthy discussion with DSHS this morning, we have decided that at this point the COVID numbers for Shelby County should be reported using the DSHS dashboard as opposed to the numbers reported to us that we’ve been providing."

The change in reporting is due to the fact Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has stopped reporting deaths directly to the local officials and the numbers on the Texas COVID-19 dashboard are more quickly reported.

As of Sunday, September 13, 2020, the DSHS dashboard reports 455 cumulative cases, 418 recoveries, and 21 deaths for Shelby County.

No available breakdown of cases by zip code is available.
