Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports two (2) new COVID-related fatalities; one a San Marcos woman in her 90s and the other a Kyle man in his 70s. Both were hospitalized at the time of their death.

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider also reported 18 new lab-confirmed cases along with three new hospitalizations and 61 additional recoveries. The County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 5,210; of those, 2,518 are considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 2,649. The number of negative tests is 23,221. Schneider is awaiting results on 34 tests.

Hays County has had 131 total hospitalizations and 18 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.

NOTE: Information about new testing sites, including several permanently operated by the county and its partners at Premiere ER and CommuniCare, as well as additional mobile testing by the Texas Division of Emergency Management, will be coming soon. That news will be shared once the details are finalized.
