Hays County COVID-19 Update September 1

Hays County Local Health Department today reports one new COVID-related fatality, a San Marcos woman in her 80s. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider also reports 14 new lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases, as well as two hospital discharges and 118 additional recoveries.

The County’s total number of lab-confirmed cases is 5,410; of those, 2,224 are considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 3,138. The number of negative tests is 24,378. Schneider is awaiting results on 29 tests. He reminds everyone that continuing to wash hands, wear masks and stay distanced from others will help move Hays County in the right direction.

“We continue to see our numbers decline and that is thanks to our residents doing their part to help slow the spread of this virus that has changed our lives over the past five months,” Schneider said. “We’ve made it this far and if we work together, we can keep moving back toward life as we knew it before COVID-19.”

Hays County has had 146 total hospitalizations and 13 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.
