UPDATED 3/27: #tylertx: In the Know about COVID-19 Locally


Dated: March 27th, 2020:

There are 21 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Smith County as of Thursday, March 26 at 12 p.m. There is one (1) COVID-19 related fatality within Smith County as of Thursday, March 26 at 12 p.m. Confirmed cases in Smith County: 21 (*Northeast Texas Public Health District PIO: Terrence Ates, (903) 343-5451)

Best practices:

Call Centers established for patient screening

The Smith County Emergency Operations Center is active and meeting seven days a week to coordinate the best response for the Smith County community.

We are asking the public to contact their healthcare provider prior to visiting hospitals or emergency rooms for treatment. It is very important for the mitigation of the spread of Coronavirus that all potential patients are screened so healthcare providers can to prepare for their arrival.

If you are experiencing or developing COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, call to speak with a clinician who will provide telephonic triage and make appropriate referrals in accordance with CDC guidelines. Additionally, you may visit and take a “Coronavirus Self-Checker” assessment. This will help you communicate symptoms to your doctor when you call their office before making a visit.

To coordinate prescreening and referral directly with UT Health East Texas, patients may call (903) 596- DOCS.

To coordinate prescreening and referral directly with CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, patients may call (903) 606-DOCS.

**In the event of an emergency, call 911.

Smith County

On Monday, March 23, 2020, Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran made clear that—at this time—he has no intention presently to sign a generalized “shelter in place” order for Smith County that would further restrict the activities of Smith County citizens and businesses as a result of COVID-19 beyond the restrictions imposed at the state level by the Governor of Texas.

Smith County remains open to the public, but with limited walk-in services.  The County encourages people to conduct their businesses online. Many non-essential services are by appointment only.  The Smith County Tax Office is closed to the public until further notice, but is still working to assist Smith County residents and businesses.
