Jack Cagle, the Harris County Commissioner for Precinct 4, announced Tuesday he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Cagle, 59, began experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms the night of Sept. 25, later experienced mild fatigue as well and sought medical testing Monday, according to a statement released by his office. His COVID-19 diagnosis was confirmed Tuesday, when Cagle attended a commissioners court meeting held that was held virtually, and he has begun the self-quarantine process.
“Cagle will continue to perform his duties as commissioner as usual and thanked his friends and supporters for their support,” his office said.
Cagle, a Republican, was first elected in 2011 and then again in 2014 and 2018. His precinct includes Garden Oaks, Oak Forest and part of the Heights area.
