Of the 442 confirmed cases, 249 have recovered, the report said.
Currently, 13 patients are hospitalized, six are in the intensive care unit, and three patients are on a ventilator, per the report.
The county also reported three additional deaths. They were a man in his 90s, a woman in her 90s and a woman over 100 years old, the report said. The death toll is now 19.
“Losing even just one of our residents was tragic, but nineteen lives lost is far too many. As we cope with the passing of members in our community, I want to emphasize the importance behind our continued efforts to protect all senior citizens. The loss of life in our nursing homes where patients have tested positive for COVID-19 has been devastating. As part of the Wilco family, we must take care of our vulnerable population by loving and supporting them at a distance in order to keep them safe,” Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell said in the release.
The county is also ramping up testing, adding testing for nonsymptomatic residents through a partnership with Family Emergency Room on May 13.
As of May 13, the county had reported 424 confirmed cases.
