City officials announced Friday that Splashville will be closed to the public after a team member tested positive for COVID-19.

“Due to this concern and out of an abundance of caution we will be closing Splashville until all of our team members have been tested and cleared to return to duty,” said City Manager Allen Barnes.

For questions or concerns, call Parks and Leisure Services Director Jen Basham at 254-918-1216 or jbasham@stephenvilletx.gov.


The news comes after seven additional Erath County residents tested positive on Friday.


"We are still getting questions about our threshold being at 42 active cases. The threshold is actually 3 cases per 1,000 population or about 126 active cases," said County Judge Alfonso Campos.


There are now a total of 62 cases since the pandemic began; 42 active cases, 19 recovered and one death.


Age breakdown: 0-12 years old - 3 cases; 13-19 years old - 2 cases; 20-29 years old - 27 cases; 30-39 years old - 6 cases; 40-64 years old - 19 cases; 65 and older - 5 cases.
