Hays County COVID-19 Update August 10, 2020

Hays County Local Health Department today reports one (1) new COVID-related fatality. The individual was a Buda man in his 40s who was hospitalized at the time of his death.

Epidemiologist Eric Schneider also reports 38 new lab-confirmed cases since Friday’s report along with seven (7) new hospitalizations, one hospital discharge and 53 additional individuals now considered recovered.

The County’s total of lab-confirmed cases is 5,050; of those, 2,787 are considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 2,228. The number of negative tests is 22,241. Schneider is awaiting results on 52 tests. He noted there are still cases not yet in the recovered category because the health department can only make a certain number of follow-up calls each day, coupled with not being able to reach people to clear them.

“We encourage everyone to continue slowing the spread of the virus by hand washing, social distancing and wearing masks,” Schneider said. “The pandemic isn’t over and it’s not time to relax when it comes to safety.”

Hays County has had 124 total hospitalizations and 20 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.
