Hays County COVID-19 Update September 4

Hays County Local Health Department today reports 25 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19. Epidemiologist Eric Schneider also reports two new hospitalizations and 66 additional recoveries. The total number of lab-confirmed cases is 5,471 with 1,987 of those considered active. The number of individuals considered recovered is 3,434. The number of negative tests is 24,705. Schneider is awaiting results on 29 tests.

Hays County has had 153 total hospitalizations and 14 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.

Schneider said the health department’s update on Tuesday, Sept. 8, will also include results from Saturday, Sunday and Monday, which is Labor Day. Hays County offices are closed that day in observation of the holiday.

 “We want to remind everyone to continue with the good habits of washing hands, wearing masks and staying distanced throughout the Labor Day holiday weekend,” Schneider said. “Another post-holiday spike in cases would take us in the wrong direction.”
