Currently, 107 patients are hospitalized, 32 are in intensive care and 12 are on a ventilator, it said. The WCCHD also reported 26% of hospital beds, 11% of ICU beds and 53% ventilators are available.
On July 1, the county reported 139 additional cases and 98 patients in the hospital.
The surge in cases, hospitalizations and the positivity rate, or the rate at which tests return positive for COVID-19 across the state, led Gov. Greg Abbott to issue an order July 3 requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces.
The governor also issued a proclamation granting mayors and county judges authority to limit outdoor gatherings of over 10 people, making it mandatory for people to avoid groups larger than 10 and maintain 6 feet of social distancing from others.
There are currently 1,342 active cases in the county, with 957 individuals recovered, per the report.
Williamson County has seen a significant increase in cases, leading city councils in Round Rock, Cedar Park and Georgetown, among others, to issue mask ordinances earlier this week.
Here is an update on the cities of residence of active cases, according to the WCCHD.
- Austin: 74
- Cedar Park: 179
- Georgetown: 257
- Hutto: 91
- Leander: 98
- Round Rock: 456
- Other: 187
