The number of active cases from just the past 21 days is 604. The number of probable cases is 795. To be more in line with how the test results are being reported by the state health department, HCLHD is now reporting the probable cases separately in our COVID-19 updates. See the full Case Criteria Definitions on our website.

The number of negative tests is 39,717. Hays County has had 397 total hospitalizations and eight (8) people are currently hospitalized. Some patients are in hospitals outside Hays County but are included in our numbers if they reside here. Likewise, an individual from another county who is in a local hospital would be accounted for in their county of residence.

*The Hays County Local Health Department contacts and follows up with every person who tests positive for COVID-19 to ensure they, or other household contacts, are not still contagious before moving them into the “Recovered” category. HCLHD does not clear people based on a calendar, because some individuals can be symptomatic and contagious for many weeks. Also, if a person has multiple family members who are household contacts, it is possible for the virus to last in that household for a period of months until everyone is symptom free.
