Closures: Over the weekend we reported about school closings in our area due to the Coronavirus threat. All seven Liberty school districts and all three Chambers County school districts have cancelled classes and extracurricular activities for this week, March 16-20. In Chambers County all three school districts: Barbers Hill, Anahuac, and East Chambers cancelled traditional classes and extra curricular activities thru Friday March 20th. In addition, the University Interscholastic League has suspended ALL UIL sporting events and academic events statewide. Each school district will monitor conditions related to the COVID-19 or Corronavirus and communicate with the Media and students when conditions change. At news time there have been no confirmed cases of Coronavirus in either Liberty or Chambers Counties. We learned that at the Liberty-Dayton Regional Medical Center hospital there have been several patients tested for the virus but all have returned from testing centers with negative test results. However there have been cases of Coronavirus detected in counties surrounding Liberty and Chambers County so an abundance of caution is urged in messages from state, national, and worldwide experts.
