Guadalupe County Emergency Management has been informed by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) that a Cibolo resident has tested positive for COVID-19. DSHS is supporting Guadalupe County in identifying any close contacts of the patient while sick, so they can be isolated and monitored for symptoms and tested, if needed. The individual is quarantined at their place of residence. The Cibolo resident had been determined to contract the virus through travel, as opposed to community spread.
Currently, DSHS deemed that there has been no known exposure to the public while the individual was symptomatic. The risk of contracting the virus from an exposure to the Cibolo case is low, and isolation is not required for anyone who does not have symptoms.
Our community continues to be a safe place and the precautions set forth by our local health and government officials will ensure the success of social distancing in combating the COVID-19 outbreak. DSHS is only able to release minimal information regarding individuals in order to prevent a violation of HIPPA. As the City of Cibolo receives more information, we will release that to the public to keep our citizens informed.
The City of Cibolo has set up a dedicated email address to answer questions about COVID-19 as it relates to City Services. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
DSHS recommends that you continue practicing social distancing. Social distancing involves staying away from other people to avoid catching or spreading illness. It’s a trendy term for avoiding crowds and minimizing physical contact. This could mean avoiding concerts or weddings, skipping the handshake, and/or staying at least six feet away from others. Minimizing exposure is especially important for people who are 65 or older and/or who have an underlying health condition like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or cancer. People in those groups have a higher risk of developing a severe, life threatening illness if they do get COVID-19, and the safest thing for them during an outbreak will be to stay home as much as possible and minimize close contact with other people.
As we move forward, please share facts, not rumors and exercise calm during this pandemic. The public can find up-to-date coronavirus information at dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus and at www.co.guadalupe.tx.us. If you have questions about COVID-19, call 2-1-1.
