Hays County COVID-19 Update January 22

Hays County Local Health Department (HCLHD) reports 77 new lab-confirmed cases along with six (6) new hospitalizations and seven (7) new hospital discharges. There are 44 additional persons considered recovered. The total number of persons considered recovered is 11,047.

The current total of lab-confirmed cases for Hays County since the beginning of the pandemic is 13,915. Hays County has 2,697 active cases. In the past 21 days there have been 3,397 active cases. Hays County has had 617 total COVID-related hospitalizations and 43 people are currently hospitalized.

Epidemiologist Ian Harris said the best way to slow the rapid community spread of the virus is to be vigilant.

“By staying home if not necessary to go out, avoiding crowds of people, wearing masks and frequent hand-washing, we can protect those in our community who are most at risk from COVID-19,” he said.

NOTE: During a HCLHD routine data audit, cases were removed from both total number of lab-confirmed and total hospitalizations. Cases are removed when they are confirmed to be duplicate or out of county.

Each Friday at 1 p.m., Hays County officials will do a Facebook Live session to share the most updated information available. Use this Facebook address: https://www.facebook.com/judgebecerra.
