Please note we will not be reporting pending case counts. With an increase in the use of rapid tests (antigen) results are almost immediate which does not require a “pending” category. When results are near-instant, cases received are often more than the previous pending count, often causing confusion from readers. The Brownwood/Brown County Health Department is also not notified of all testing being done, which does not allow an accurate count of the true pending cases.
