Hays County COVID-19 Update November 10

NOTE: Hays County offices are closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11; we will not have a COVID-19 update that day.

Hays County Local Health Department (HCLHD) reports 73 new lab-confirmed cases, one (1) new hospitalization and 66 additional people now considered recovered.

The total number of individuals considered recovered is 5,983. The total number of lab-confirmed cases is 6,486 with 412 of those considered active*. The number of active cases from just the past 21 days is 604. The number of probable cases is 795. To be more in line with how the test results are being reported by the state health department, HCLHD is now reporting the probable cases separately in our COVID-19 updates. See the full Case Criteria Definitions on our website.

The number of negative tests is 39,717. Hays County has had 397 total hospitalizations and eight (8) 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.

*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.
