COVID- 19 News Release

COVID Update (10)

Update: Notification of 3 positive cases was received 04/06/2020 bringing the total number of cases to 16.  We encourage all residents to practice social distancing and work as a team to help protect our most vulnerable. Guadalupe County issued a Stay Home Stay Safe order encouraging all residents to stay home when possible. 

A previous case has a known possible exposure to the public in an essential business.

   It is possible that individuals who visited the following location at the date and times listed may have been exposed:

  • Thursday, March 19th, 10am-1pm: Walmart, 602 Cibolo Valley Dr., Cibolo, TX 78108

The risk of contracting the virus from these exposures is low and isolation is not required for anyone that does not have symptoms. If you believe you have been exposed, monitor yourself closely for symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath for 14 days after the exposure.  If you experience any of these symptoms and do not need urgent medical attention, isolate at home and contact your healthcare provider.   


There are things everyone can do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.  
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Minimizing exposure is especially important for people who are 65 or older 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 severe disease 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. To get ready, they should talk to their doctor about getting additional prescription medications and have enough household items and groceries on hand to stay home as needed.

The public can find up-to-date coronavirus information at dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus.  If you have questions about COVID-19, call 2-1-1.
