Two more Grayson County residents have died from COVID-19, officials reported Thursday.

During his Thursday afternoon press briefing, Grayson County Judge Executive Kevin Henderson said the 66-year-old male who had been hospitalized for the past several days (and whose case was not related to Grayson Nursing and Rehabilitation) and a 97-year-old female resident of Grayson Nursing and Rehab have died from the coronavirus. 

Officials had not been in contact with the families of these two individuals at the time of Thursday's press briefing, so their names have not yet been announced publicly. 

There have now been five Grayson County residents who have died from COVID-19. 

Additionally, Henderson reported that four new positive cases of the coronavirus were reported in Grayson County Thursday, and all of them were among Spring View Nursing and Rehabilitation residents. 

Those residents were a 70-year-old male, an 84-year-old male, a 69-year-old female, and a 91-year-old female. 

These new cases bring Grayson County's total number of positive COVID-19 cases to 69. In all, 496 Grayson County residents have been tested for COVID-19, with 379 testing negative and 48 test results pending. 

In closing, Henderson asked the community to remember the ones lost Thursday, the healthcare workers and facilities, and the long-term care facilities, and to remember to stay "Grayson County Strong."
