Hays County COVID-19 Update

The Hays County Health Department reports 45 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 16 recoveries Nov. 13, bringing the total number of cases in the county to 6,616 and recoveries to 6,014. The total active cases in the last 21 days is 641.

Hays County removed 14 cases from the total case count as part of the local health department’s continuous audit of COVID-19 data. Hays County Epidemiologist Eric Schneider stated that cases with addresses outside Hays County, invalid test results and duplications of previously counted cases are cases that the department will seek to remove each Friday.
“After the most recent internal data review, we found cases that shouldn’t be in our total number of positive COVID-19 cases,” Schneider said. “We will remove them from the data totals, thereby reducing our overall case count.”

San Marcos, Kyle and Buda have 87, 190 and 128 active cases, respectively.

According to Schneider, the total number of received negative tests in the county is now 41,697. The total number of hospitalizations is 401 and total current hospitalizations is nine after one individual was discharged. There have been a total of 91 fatalities in the county.
