The number of negative tests is 41,697. Hays County has had 401 total hospitalizations and nine (9) people are currently hospitalized. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said it’s important for Hays County residents to remember that the coronavirus pandemic is still active.

“We know COVID fatigue is real, but this virus is still very prominent in the Hays County community,” he said. “Before we see an even larger increase, we want everyone to be vigilant. Wear those masks, wash your hands and stay home whenever you can.”

As part of the Hays County Local Health Department’s continuous audit of COVID-19 data, the epidemiology team identified cases that will be removed from the county’s cumulative case count beginning today. Earlier today the county sent out a new release about that process; see that statement here.

*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.
