Montgomery County has reported three additional deaths related to COVID-19, bringing the death toll to 57 as of July 29, according to the Montgomery County Public Health District. Two men in their 80s, both from Montgomery, and a woman in her 80s, from Willis, have died. All had comorbidities in addition to testing positive for COVID-19.
Active cases decreased by seven from July 28, now numbering 2,543. Of those, 1,551 are reportedly in self-isolation.
Since December, Montgomery County commissioners have been updating their 2016 thoroughfare plan, which will provide a comprehensive list of transportation needs. With funds from the county’s last road bond in 2015 beginning to dwindle, officials said they would need to identify funding at some point in the future.
