Per the pooler, this is what @GovAbbott said: “The answer is no,” he replied. “They're not commingling those numbers. Those numbers will be provided separately.”

El Paso, Randall, Moore, Potter and Deaf Smith counties will have delayed reopening by a week, due to local circumstances.
As I reported on here last week, the state is combining two kinds of #COVID19 tests in its official count. That may be giving the public a false impression of how well we're tracking the virus. But we need more data to know how much the count is skewed. kut.org/post/texas-may…

Bad math here. It's actually 1,801 new cases in Texas reported today. twitter.com/mattlargey/sta…
NEW: 1,699 new confirmed cases reported today — the biggest jump to date by far. In a statement, Texas @GovAbbott says 700 of those cases alone are in Amarillo, chalks it up to more testing there. Statewide, ~32,000 tests reported today. 33 new deaths. https://t.co/1iWMcPsxhU
 
This would seem to mask — or at least muddy — increased cases due to reopening. Without more data, it will be difficult for the public to differentiate between more cases resulting from going out to eat vs. the virus spreading in a jail (tho both are bad). https://t.co/eR7AMK7DNq
