Hays County Local Health Department (HCLHD) reports one (1) COVID-related fatalities: a Buda man in his 50s.

The department also reports 129 new lab-confirmed cases, six (6) new hospitalizations and seven (7) new hospital discharges, along with 164 additional people now considered recovered.

The current total of lab-confirmed cases for Hays County is 11,291 with 1,654 current active cases. The County has had 2,521 active cases in the last 21 days. There are 78,940 negative tests overall. The total number of recoveries is 9,500. Hays County has had 581 total COVID-related hospitalizations and 38 people are currently hospitalized.

Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra again reminds Hays County residents that if the regional hospitalization capacity for COVID patients remains at 15 percent or above for seven consecutive days, that will put into place restrictions at places of business countywide.

“The current data indicate that Region O will hit that seven-day mark this weekend,” he said. “More information about the impending restrictions will be shared in the coming days.”

See the Department of State Health Services website for more about hospitalization capacity in Region O.
