Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 145 new cases of COVID-19, along with eight (8) additional recoveries since yesterday’s update.

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 1,238. Hays County has 903 active cases. The number of individuals considered recovered is 330.

The number of negative tests is 5,109. Schneider is awaiting results on 72 tests*. The County added two new hospitalizations, bringing the total to 49. Seventeen people are currently hospitalized.

“We are still in a pandemic,” Schneider said, “and we are seeing that second wave all the health experts talked about.”

He said if people want to stop the spread of COVID-19, they should continue doing the things they did before, including wearing masks, staying physically distanced from others and washing their hands often.

“The reason we do these things is to protect the most vulnerable in our community,” he said.

*Those tested by the Texas Department of Emergency Management are not included in this number. Those results will be sent from the state directly to those persons who were tested and the County will get a copy. The breakdown of those cases will be added to the County’s updates when we receive them.

Note: the COVID-19 online Dashboard will be updated once daily.
