Currently, 61 patients are hospitalized, up from 23 the day before. The number of intensive care unit patients and those on a ventilator also doubled from nine to 20 and four to eight, respectively, per the report.
The county also reported 937 active cases and 777 recovered. Of resources within the county, 28% of hospital beds, 13% of ICU beds and 69% of ventilators are available.
The county also reported three additional deaths. They were a man in his 70s, a woman in her 80s and a woman aged 100, per the report.
“Our county is mourning the loss of three more lives today,” Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell said in a news release. “This sad news is a reminder of the devastating impacts of this virus, and how it will take all of us working together to keep our community from being further impacted.”
On June 25, the county reported 88 additional cases, bringing the total to 1,702.
Justine Price, the deputy director of the Williamson County and Cities Health District, warned the Commissioners Court on June 23 that the county will likely see a large increase in hospitalizations as more cases are confirmed. She added she worries there will be a spike in cases following the Fourth of July as was the case with Memorial Day.
Texas has seen significant surges in cases and in hospitalizations, leading Gov. Greg Abbott to announce the closure of bars as of noon June 26 and whittle back restaurant capacity to 50%. It was previously at 75%.
While surrounding cities and counties have announced mandates requiring residents to wear masks, Williamson County has yet to issue the regulation.
