Currently, 106 patients are hospitalized, 33 are in intensive care, and 17 are on a ventilator, it said. The WCCHD also reported 32% of hospital beds, 15% of ICU beds and 72% ventilators are available.
Over the weekend, the county reported five additional deaths, including a man in his 60s, a man in his 70s, a man in his 90s and two women in their 90s. As such, the current death toll is 56.
Due to the increase in cases, the state remains under a mask order requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces.
As June 12, the county’s seven-day average positivity rate, or the rate at which tests return positive, is 26.17%.
Here is an update on total cases in the cities of residence including deaths, according to the WCCHD.
- Austin: 253
- Cedar Park: 453
- Georgetown: 716
- Hutto: 290
- Leander: 219
- Round Rock: 1,467
- Other: 483
If the WCCHD is unable to confirm city of residence after three attempts, the case is deemed “lost to follow-up” and is not included in the above count, officials said.
Officials said the county is not legally able to release the specific counts in cities with fewer than 20,000 residents. For more information, such as gender and age breakdowns, visit the county's dashboard.
The WCCHD transitioned to the state’s contact tracing/data system over the holiday weekend and is no longer able to access some of the data it previously displayed on the dashboard, such as active and recovered count, according to its website.
