Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 50 new cases, one new hospitalization, and 53 additional recoveries. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 3,243; of those, 2,652 are considered active. The total number of individuals considered recovered is 581. The number of negative tests is 10,417. Schneider is awaiting results on 61 tests. Hays County has had 69 total hospitalizations; 21 people are currently hospitalized.

 “We like to see the number of new cases going down, but we cannot relax at this point,” Schneider said. “The COVID-19 virus is still active in Hays County. And while it may not hurt you personally, you could pass it along to a loved one or friend who isn’t able to fight the virus.”

He added that we can all do simple, effective things to slow the spread.

“Stay home if you don’t have to go out,” he said. “When out in public, stay six feet from others, wear a mask and wash your hands often. This community has the power to make an impact.”
