Likewise, an individual from another county who is in a local hospital would be accounted for in their county of residence.

Schneider reminds the public that free COVID-19 testing is happening through August 29.

“Hays County, in conjunction with the Texas Division of Emergency Management, has two more days of free COVID-19 testing,” Schneider said. “This is a good opportunity for anyone who wants to get tested and no appointment is needed.”

Free testing is taking place Friday and Saturday at San Marcos High School and the Hays CISD Performing Arts Center in Kyle between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at both sites. For more information, see this Facebook event.
