No new deaths were reported, leaving the county’s death toll at eight.
Since May 21, Grayson County has recorded only three confirmed cases of the virus. Two of the three cases are inmates at the Grayson County Detention Center.
Of the county’s confirmed COVID-19 cases, 45 are residents of Grayson Nursing & Rehabilitation while 17 are staff members. Spring View Nursing & Rehabilitation has had 12 residents test positive along with three employees.
Five cases have arisen from Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center.
The Grayson County Detention Center has had 25 positive tests, 23 inmates and two staff members (one of the staff members lives in another county and is therefore counted in that county’s numbers).
