Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn has tested positive for COVID-19 but has a “mild case” and is recovering at home, a spokeswoman said.
Waybourn went home after feeling ill last Friday and tested positive on Saturday, said Lt. Jennifer Gabbert.
He has remained in isolation and “seems well on the road to recovery,” she said.
Waybourn, 61, is the second Tarrant County official to test positive for the virus.
Waybourn won a second term as sheriff earlier this month.
