ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – According to the City of Abilene and the Abilene Taylor County Public Health District there are no new cases of COVID-19. The total remains 217.

There are 217 positive cases of COVID-19 recorded by the City, and 3,732 tests have been administered.

This number varies drastically from the 350-odd cases reported just weeks ago because the State of Texas recently requested the City of Abilene stop including positive results from the prison units, which are in Jones County, and results based on antibody tests.

Currently, city officials are working to recalculate demographic information, so statistics about the patients’ ages, common symptoms, and more are not available at this time.

Three patients are currently hospitalized, though nothing has been disclosed about their current conditions.

This is the second consecutive day without confirmed COVID-19 cases in Taylor County
