Granbury Logo

Granbury, Texas – Government officials found out this weekend that Hood County was one of 50 Texas counties, out of 254, whose COVID-19 infection numbers were so low that their businesses could move into the second Phase of Governor Greg Abbott’s Open Texas program, which would allow its businesses to reopen at 50 percent, instead of 25 percent, of capacity, according to the Governor’s Open Texas Report.

“As of May 1, (the) Department of State Health Services has recertified certain counties based on the new positive count criteria for COVID-19,” said Hood County Office of Emergency Management Coordinator Jay Webster. “We are pleased to announce that our county was certified to reopen at the 50 percent guidelines.”

Granbury and Hood County’s latest numbers of COVID-19 patients was far below neighboring cities of Fort Worth and Dallas, who both saw huge one-day spikes in reported cases over the weekend. According to DSHS, Hood County has 20 active cases, as of 5 p.m. on May 1. For more information contact City of Granbury Public Information Officer Alex Southern at 817-573-6764.
