“We’re pleased to see Hays County residents continuing to help prevent the spread of the virus, but we can’t ease up on our efforts,” Schneider said. “By working together, social distancing, wearing masks and washing our hands, we can protect ourselves and the most vulnerable in our community.”

Hays County has had 98 hospitalizations and 23 people are currently hospitalized; no change from Tuesday’s report.

Likewise, an individual from another county who is in a local hospital would be accounted for in their county of residence.
