Kerr County is continuing to maintain its low number of active cases of COVID-19, according to updated numbers released Monday. As of March 29, there are 34 active cases of the novel coronavirus, according to Kerr County Emergency Mangement Coordinator Dub Thomas.
Aggregated by Thomas from reports by Peterson Regional Medical Center and the Texas Department of State Health Services, the county’s case counts are as follows:
34 Active Cases- (Number of local residents who currently are positive for COVID-19).
4,197 Recoveries- (Kerr County citizens who were once confirmed as positive for the virus but have since “timed out” of the short-term complications presented by the illness).
84 Fatalities-(The number of Kerr County permanent residents whose deaths were attributed to COVID-19. Some residents may have died outside the county).
1 Hospitalized-(Number of people who are in Peterson Regional Medical Center receiving treatment for COVID-19).
As Texas has opened its COVID-19 vaccine eligible to all adults, Peterson Health is making changes to its vaccine appointment process. Currently, Peterson Health has closed its pre-registration survey link and those already on the waiting list will receive a confirmation call within the next two weeks to confirm their wish to remain on the list or ask to be removed from the list.
Peterson Health representatives will publicize the new vaccine appointment process once it has been finalized.
