MT. PLEASANT, Texas (KETK) – Titus County confirmed 35 new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday on the first day of free testing, according to Judge Brian Lee. The case count is up to 576, by far the highest in Texas.

The Greenhill Villas Nursing Home in Mount Pleasant had every resident tested and all came back negative.

At the Civic Center, 231 people were tested for the virus. The free tests at the center run through Friday afternoon. Lee said that anyone can come by for testing, regardless of whether or not you show symptoms.
