Published

There is good news about Montague County’s only confirmed case of Coronavirus as that person has been cleared and is free to move about.
Montague County Judge Rick Lewis said he learned the news from County Health Officer Dr. Delbert McCaig Monday afternoon.
On March 25, McCaig announced the Nocona area resident had tested positive in Wichita Falls where he had been under observation.
Local media had reported the patient had recently undergone surgery in Wichita Falls and after leaving the hospital became ill, which led him to make at least one trip to Nocona General Hospital Rural Health Clinic.
Officials said at the time he did not present sufficient indicators to be tested for COVID-19.
During the weekend of March 21-22 he went to a Wichita Falls hospital where he was admitted.
Lewis said state health officials back tracked on the patient’s activities and were able to contact those he may have come into contact with prior to the hospital.
