Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 88 new lab-confirmed cases, two people released from the hospital and 38 additional recoveries. This update includes the demographic data from Saturday, Sunday and today.

“We are still seeing a surge of COVID-19 cases in Hays County,” Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said. “The Hays County Local Health Department strongly urges that everyone limit their trips and interactions with others, wear a mask and stay distanced from others in public. And hand washing is still one of the top ways to decrease the spread of the virus.”

The County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 3,643; of those, 2,939 are considered active. The total number of individuals considered recovered is 693. The number of negative tests is 10,827. Schneider is awaiting results on 73 tests. Hays County has had 72 total hospitalizations; 20 people are currently hospitalized. Some patients are in hospitals outside Hays County but are included in our numbers.

A COVID-19 Fact Sheet has been added to the County website: https://hayscountytx.com/covid-19-fact-sheet/. This document provides a glossary of terms and insight into methods and results calculations.
