The Hays County Local Health Department today reports a second COVID-19 related fatality. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the individual, a Wimberley resident in their 90s, passed away yesterday, following two weeks in the hospital.

Today’s report shows four new cases, putting the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases at 203. Of those, 72 are considered currently active. Schneider said 129 people are now considered recovered from the virus.

Total hospitalizations to date for Hays County is 20, with four persons currently hospitalized. Negative tests are at 1,919 with 11 pending.

As a reminder, Hays County is partnering with the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas Army National Guard to offer free COVID-19 testing this Sunday, May 10. There are two locations, one in Wimberley, one in Dripping Springs.

Anyone wanting a test must register and go through a health screening to determine if a test will be ordered. The registration contact information will be provided on the County’s website and Facebook page beginning at 8 a.m. May 9, 24 hours in advance of the testing operations. The testing locations will be given to those with an appointment. No drive-up/drive-thru testing sites are available in Hays County.
