Originally story from Friday, June 26 below:

Crockett County has a sixth positive COVID-19 case.

According to the Tom Green County Health Department, a teenage Hispanic Male from Crockett County was listed in the Friday, June 26, report.

The previous positive patients are:

• White teenage female, exposure to known case

• Hispanic female child, exposure to known case

• White teenage male, exposure to known case.

• Hispanic teenage male, exposure to known case

• Hispanic male in his 40s, community spread.

All previous patients have recovered.

HIPPA laws prevent health authorities from revealing the name of the individual.

According to the CDC website, community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.

Governor Greg Abbott announced Friday that bars must close at noon Friday and restaurants must cut back to 50% capacity by Monday, June 29. Before Abbott's announcement Friday, bars were able to operate at 50% capacity and restaurants at 75% capacity.

As for outdoor gatherings, Abbott's decision Friday represents his second adjustment in that category this week. Abbott on Tuesday gave local governments the choice to place restrictions on outdoor gatherings of over 100 people after previously setting the threshold at over 500 people. Now outdoor gatherings of over 100 people are prohibited unless local officials explicitly approve of them. State officials have noted that case numbers in Texas began to increase around Memorial Day weekend, and have expressed worry about big public gatherings for Fourth of July.

On Thursday, Texas saw another record number of new cases — 5,996 — as well as hospitalizations — 4,739. The hospitalization number set a record for the 14th straight day.
