From an email from TAMU tonight:

"Yesterday, President Young issued a letter to campus in which he identified the first known case of a student living off-campus who tested positive for COVID-19. Today, the Brazos County Health District announced a total of six confirmed cases to-date of COVID-19 in Brazos County including a second case involving another off-campus Texas A&M student who followed appropriate protocols in seeking treatment at the on-campus Student Health Services (SHS). The SHS has separate staffed entrances and instructions on its page at for reporting-for-treatment protocols related to COVID-19 symptoms. The individual was tested at SHS and directed to self-isolate at his off-campus residence. The Brazos County Health District has tracked contact patterns to be in communication with those with whom these individuals came in close contact.

The Brazos County Health District advised today evidence of community spread in Brazos County, as has been the case in other areas of Texas. This community spread case was not one of the aforementioned Texas A&M cases.

Since that time, we have learned of two more individuals associated with Texas A&M who have tested positive: one individual who works in a small area of the veterinary school and one individual at the Round Rock campus of the Texas A&M Health Science Center. Health authorities have been notified and contact tracing begun."

So this sounds like the 20 something case with New Mexico travel is the second student.

One person is in Round Rock so not local. The one at the vet school is concerning because if they end up having to shut it down, that removes the only 24 hour emergency vet clinic in the area.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill
