Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra again reminds Hays County residents that if the regional hospitalization capacity for COVID patients remains at 15 percent or above for seven consecutive days, that will put into place restrictions at places of business countywide.

See the Department of State Health Services website for more about hospitalization capacity in Region O.
