“We are still seeing a surge of COVID-19 cases in Hays County,” Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said. “The Hays County Local Health Department strongly urges that everyone limit their trips and interactions with others, wear a mask and stay distanced from others in public. And hand washing is still one of the top ways to decrease the spread of the virus.”
