Williamson County reported 39,653 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, according to Williamson County and Cities Health District data.

The county also added one death, bringing the total to 475.

Counted deaths are of those who have COVID-19 listed as a direct cause of death on the death certificate. The total does not include deaths of people who had COVID-19 but died of an unrelated cause, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services dashboard. This method may delay reporting by weeks or even months due to paperwork, county health officials have said.

Williamson County continues to be in the orange phase of community spread, which indicates a high spread level. Local health officials still recommend individuals wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of distance from those not in their household.

According to the dashboard, 48.14% of eligible Williamson County residents are fully vaccinated, and 60.87% have received at least one shot.


In addition, about 15% of COVID-19 hospital beds are available, and 12% of COVID-19 ICU beds are available, according to the dashboard.

The seven-day rolling positive rate, or the rate at which tests for the coronavirus return positive, remains at 3%.

Total cases by cities of residence, including probable cases, according to the WCCHD, are as follows.


  • Austin: 3,799

  • Cedar Park: 3,017

  • Georgetown: 8,456

  • Hutto: 2,937

  • Leander: 3,403

  • Round Rock: 10,705

  • Other: 5,339


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.

Here is a breakdown of deaths by city, according to the WCCHD.



  • Austin: 24
