Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 69 new cases of COVID-19. This report also contains the demographic break-down of the cases from Saturday (142 cases) and Sunday (54 cases).

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is now 938. The number of individuals considered recovered is 267, up one (1) from Friday’s report. Hays County has 666 active cases.

The number of negative tests is 4,824. Schneider is awaiting results on 112 tests*. The County added several new hospitalizations bringing the total to 46 and one more person was released. Fourteen persons are currently hospitalized.

“With the high numbers of positive cases over the past week or so,” Schneider said, “I want to remind Hays County residents that we are still in a global pandemic.”

Schneider said if people want to stop the spread of the virus, they should continue doing the things they were doing in the spring, including wearing masks, staying physically distanced from others and washing their hands often.

“We need everyone to continue working together and protecting our community,” he said.

*Those tested by the Texas Department of Emergency Management on June 14 are not included in this number. Those results will be sent from the state directly to those persons who were tested.

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