Abbott and Trump have been talking. They will "open up" large swaths to business. (Geographically, not population-wise) but bet they will say like 50% of TX open.

Little Castro county with a population of less than 400 people has 6 cases.

That map is inaccurate though. There are 3 COVID-19 cases in Randall county that don't appear on it. That's disturbing.

finally admitted that. My county kept bragging about zero cases yet we knew a nurse who told us the hospital had cases.

How do you know Randolph Cnty has 4? It's all so fishy.

That said, they should have a had a uniform methodology to start. Do you report on where the person was (i.e. UT)?, Where their residence is? Dallas Cnty? Or where the hospital is? And not picking up people with it who are self quarantining, or people who don't realize and are walking around.
