Hays County Emergency Information

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 155 new cases of COVID-19, along with 55 additional recoveries. That number now includes two persons who were cleared following the release of Monday’s update. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is now 1,093. Hays County has 766 active cases. The number of individuals considered recovered is 322. (Note: yesterday’s active cases 666 + today’s new cases 155 – recovered since yesterday 55 = 766 active cases.)

The number of negative tests is 5,065. Schneider is awaiting results on 84 tests*. The County added one new hospitalization bringing the total to 47. Fifteen people are currently hospitalized.

“With Hays County cases increasing daily,” Schneider said, “it’s important to remember that we are still in a global pandemic.”

Warm weather and a sense of cabin fever may play a part in people not continuing to do the things we all need to do to slow the spread of the virus, he added. Schneider said if people want to stop the spread of COVID-19, they should continue doing the things they did before, including wearing masks, staying physically distanced from others and washing their hands often.

“The reason for doing these things and trying to slow the spread is to protect the most vulnerable in 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.
