Hockley County Judge Sharla Baldridge reported three new deaths of Lynwood residents related to COVID-19 Monday, all between the ages of 80 and 90 years old.

Judge Baldridge also reported 89 new Hockley County cases involving 85 Levelland residents, three Sundown residents and one Whitharral resident.

The age ranges of the new cases are as follows: three between the ages of zero and 10 years old, seven between 10 and 20 years old, four between 20 and 30 years old, eight between 30 and 40 years old, 14 between 40 and 50 years old, 12 between 50 and 60 years old, 11 between 60 and 70 years old, 13 between 70 and 80 years old, 10 between 80 and 90 years old and three between 90 and 100 years old.

The cases in Sundown include one resident between zero and 10 years old, one resident between the ages of 60 and 70 years old and one resident between the ages of 80 and 90 years old.

The Whitharral resident is between the ages of 40 and 50 years old.

Judge Baldridge said the Department of State Health Services said their staff cannot generate a new recovery report until Wednesday, possibly, due to errors in their system.

As of Monday, there have been 734 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Hockley County, including 355 recoveries, 20 deaths and 359 active cases.
