Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports three COVID-related fatalities; all were in their 70s and were hospitalized at the time of their deaths. One male and one female were from San Marcos, the other was a man from Kyle.

The health department also reports 49 new lab-confirmed cases, 29 recoveries, two new hospitalizations and one person discharged from the hospital.

“We’re encouraged by seeing fewer cases reported over the past several days but want to remind everyone this is far from over,” he said. “COVID-19 is still very active in Hays County and we all need to help to slow the spread.”

Schneider reminds everyone to continue wearing masks, washing hands and staying distanced while in public.

The County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 3,865; of those, 3,018 are considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 830. The number of negative tests is 11,197. Schneider is awaiting results on 52 tests.

Hays County has had 80 total hospitalizations; 20 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.

As noted in an earlier news release, Hays County has suspended weekend reporting of new COVID-19 cases. See that release here: https://hayscountytx.com/2020/07/17/hays-county-to-suspend-weekend-covid-reporting/

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.
