“Learning of three deaths today from COVID-19 is beyond words,” Denton County Judge Andy Eads said in the news release. “We ask that you keep all of these families in your thoughts and prayers. It is extremely important, as businesses reopen and we begin to venture out more often, that we take every precaution possible to keep ourselves, our families, our friends and others whose paths we cross as safe as possible.”
