*The Hays County Local Health Department contacts and follows up with every person who tests positive for COVID-19 to ensure they, or other household contacts, are not still contagious before moving them into the “Recovered” category. HCLHD does not clear people based on a calendar, because some individuals can be symptomatic and contagious for many weeks. Also, if a person has multiple family members who are household contacts, it is possible for the virus to last in that household for a period of months until everyone is symptom free.
