After a delayed update, Williamson County reported 42 new coronavirus cases and two new deaths Aug. 25. The total number of cases is 7,789.

To date, 80 patients are hospitalized; 27 are in intensive care; and 17 are on a ventilator. The Williamson County and Cities Health District also reported 21% of hospital beds, 17% of ICU beds and 86% of ventilators are available.

The total number of deaths increased to 115.

Counted deaths are of those who have COVID-19 listed as a direct cause of death on the death certificate. A medical certifier, usually a doctor, determines the causes of death. The Texas Department of State Health Services does not include deaths of people who had COVID-19 but died of an unrelated cause, according to the DSHS dashboard.

The number of known active cases continues to decline as does the current rolling seven-day positivity rate, or the rate tests return positive, which is 8.13%. More than 7,300 people have recovered, according to the WCCHD dashboard.

Here is an update on total cases in the cities of residence including probable cases, per the WCCHD dashboard.

  • Austin: 499

  • Cedar Park: 805

  • Georgetown: 1,358

  • Hutto: 527

  • Leander: 416

  • Round Rock: 2,435

  • Other: 932

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.
