On Wednesday, Comal County's Office of Public health (OPH) reported four new cases of the coronavirus, with 14 active cases and three hospitalizations. The county has confirmed 87 cases since the pandemic arrived in mid-March.
Guadalupe County reported seven new cases, of which 28 are active. The county's total case count is 134.
Comal County and Guadalupe County reported 35 new cases of the coronavirus between May 20 and May 27, a 19% increase.
Of the 221 cases that have been reported in both counties, 28 were confirmed from March 18-31 when the pandemic began, 108 were confirmed in April, and 85 have been reported from May 1-27.
In a press release issued by Comal County, the OPH reported 2,956 COVID-19 tests had been conducted on Comal residents. 1,465 of those are from a one-time testing event done last week of all local nursing home residents and employees.
Results are still pending for 200 tests, 49 of which are from Comal nursing homes.
Of those nursing home tests, one outside medical practitioner that sees residents at Eden Hill Communities in New Braunfels tested positive. As they are not a county resident, they are not included in the county's case totals.
