LIVE UPDATES: Coronavirus in Killeen, TX

Bell County's weekly news briefing on COVID-19 has been moved to Thursday at 1 PM in observance of Good Friday.

Bell County Judge David Blackburn and Bell County Public Health Director Amanda Robison-Chadwell will once again host this week's live stream from the Bell County Courthouse, which you watch on the Bell County Office of Emergency Management's Facebook page. Again, that starts at 1 PM. If you like and follow the page, you should receive an alert letting you know the stream is live.

We will also share the news briefing on our Facebook page.

Joining Judge Blackburn and Dr. Chadwell this week is Umad Ahmad, chief medical officer at AdventHealth Central Texas.

These briefings typically update the public on the number of cases in Bell County and across Texas and the U.S., as well as provide information on current directives put in place by Judge Blackburn. Participants also take questions from the press.
