Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 99 new cases of COVID-19; approximately eight (8) were from yesterday but weren’t entered in the spreadsheet by the time the County needed to send out the update. An additional 16 cases that were received yesterday were determined to be not within Hays County and were reported to the appropriate jurisdiction.

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is now 673. The number of individuals considered recovered is 266, up three (3) from yesterday’s report. Hays County has 402 active cases.

The number of negative tests is 4,641. Schneider is awaiting results on 57 tests. The County added one (1) new hospitalization bringing the total to 43. Fourteen persons are currently hospitalized.

“Today’s COVID-19 numbers are once again high,” Schneider said. “The community needs to remember that we are still in a pandemic.”

He said everyone should continue doing the simple but effective things that kept our numbers low: Wear a mask in public, wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and stay at least six feet apart from others when out and about.

“We want everyone to remember why we do these things,” he said. “It’s to protect our community.”

Schneider said by working together, all Hays County residents can slow the spread of the virus.

Note: the COVID-19 online Dashboard will be updated once daily.
