CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — 8 Driscoll Children's Hospital employees have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

According to Ben Castle, a representative from Driscoll Children's Hospital, the 8 Driscoll Hospital employees that have tested positive for COVID-19 are not necessarily from clinical positions.

That number is combined from all their locations and offices across South Texas.

DCH has 2,500 employees working in specialty centers, clinics, and health plan offices across South Texas.

They serve 31 South Texas counties.

Still no word on what offices those 8 employees work in or what their positions are at this time.
