The total number of confirmed cases is now 5,071.
The hospitalization data was not updated due to a technical issue with the data feed, according to a memo on the dashboard.
The county also reported two additional deaths, two women in their 70s. The death toll is now 79.
Of the total cases, 4,073 have recovered, and there are 919 active cases.
However, recoveries are not reported to the state’s contact tracing and data system; therefore, recovery information is not absolute and is to be used for estimating purposes only, according to the WCCHD website. No trends or other inferences should be drawn from this data, as the numbers posted represent a point-in-time snapshot and may fluctuate throughout the day, it said.
On July 21, the county reported 93 additional cases and three additional deaths. The county also reported its highest number of daily hospitalizations, at 115.
As of July 21, the county’s seven-day average positivity rate, or the rate at which coronavirus tests return positive, was 22.37%, which has increased slightly but continues to be lower than its peak at 35.3% on June 30.
Here is an update on the total cases by city of residence, including deaths, according to the WCCHD.
- Austin: 315
- Cedar Park: 568
- Georgetown: 936
- Hutto: 373
- Leander: 255

If the WCCHD is unable to confirm the 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 recovery counts, according to its website.
