As of Sunday, March 29, Burnet County now has three confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the county and officials are continuing to expect more positive tests in the next few days, County Judge James Oakley said.

“As I instructed yesterday, this virus is very much in our area. Please take every possible action to protect yourself. While we have encouraged citizens to get outside, witnessing large groups of people on individual boats is clearly unacceptable,” Oakley said. “If the rules that have been put in place are not respected, then I will be forced to enhance them and start clamping down on enforcement with fines & possible incarceration. With that, I am strongly advising adherence to the common sense principles that are included within the current order.”
