Hays County COVID-19 Update August 7

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 23 new lab-confirmed cases along with one person released from the hospital and 49 additional individuals now considered recovered.

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider said the County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 5,012; of those, 2,803 are considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 2,175. The number of negative tests is 22,226. Schneider is awaiting results on 41 tests.

“Over the past week, our daily case counts have shown a downward trend,” Schneider said. “That is good thing, but we shouldn’t rest on our laurels; COVID-19 isn’t over. We need everyone to keep washing their hands, wearing masks and staying distanced from others. Stay home if you can. These are the things that help slow the spread of the virus.”

Hays County has had 117 total hospitalizations and 15 people are currently hospitalized. Some patients are in hospitals outside Hays County but are included in our numbers if they reside here. Likewise, an individual from another county who is in a local hospital would be accounted for in their county of residence.
