Hays County Local Health Department (HCLHD) reports six COVID-related fatalities, two women and two men from San Marcos, all in their 90s, one Kyle woman in her 90s and one Buda woman in her 80s. The department also reports 336 new lab-confirmed cases along with six (6) new hospitalizations and seven (7) new hospital discharges. There are 176 additional persons considered recovered.

The current total of lab-confirmed cases for Hays County since the beginning of the pandemic is 12,446. Hays County has 2,419 active cases. In the past 21 days there have been 3,021 active cases. Hays County has had 614 total COVID-related hospitalizations and 41 people are currently hospitalized.

Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra reminds everyone that per the Governor’s Executive Order GA-32, new capacity restrictions are now in effect for Hays County. The County issued a separate release on January 8 with more details, which can found here.

“The only way we can get a handle on this rapid virus spread is if all Hays County residents work together by staying home when possible, not gathering in groups, washing their hands, wearing masks and staying distanced from others in public,” Becerra said. “We must come together as a community for the greater good.”

Current capacity restrictions will remain in effect until Trauma Service Area O stays under 15 percent hospital capacity for seven consecutive days. Visit the Department of State Health Services website for more info about hospital rates.
