Bailey County is up to 33 total confirmed cases as of Wednesday afternoon.
So far, 21 people have recovered and there are 12 active cases in the county. A total of 284 tests have been conducted.
A news release from County Attorney Jackie Claborn, which was posted on the Baily County Courthouse Facebook page, states that the city will start posting daily updates on COVID-19 activity. The information will be posted to the Muleshoe/Bailey County Emergency Mgmt Facebook page by 5 p.m. every day.
In a video posted on that Facebook page, Muleshoe Police Chief Gary McHone stated that the Emergency Mgmt. page will now become the central information hub regarding COVID-19 updates for Bailey County.
McHone said he hopes it will help people avoid confusion prompted by the flow of information from multiple sources.
No information will be released regarding exposure sites unless it’s determined there’s a risk of public exposure.
In McHone’s latest video, which was released Thursday, he encouraged citizens to take precautions – wear masks and sanitize areas of frequent traffic.
