COVID-19 Cases Continue to Rise in Buda and Hays County: Stay Budaful, Healthy, & Mask Up

Stay Healthy and Safe Social Media

COVID CASES CONTINUE TO RISE IN BUDA AND HAYS COUNTY
 
Stay Budaful, Healthy, & Mask Up 
 

BUDA, TX - Dec. 16, 2020 - COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Buda and across Hays County. It is a reminder that we are still in a global pandemic. Please continue to stay vigilant and take the necessary precautions to protect your loved ones, our healthcare workers, and the community. Together we can make a “budaful” difference.  
 

There are three important ways to help slow the spread:

· Wear a mask to protect yourself and others.

· Stay at least 6 feet from others who do not live with you, and avoid crowds.

· Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.   

 

“COVID-19 cases in Hays County have dramatically spiked since Thanksgiving. The City of Buda has seen an increase of over 200 new cases in this same period," said Mayor Lee Urbanovsky. "There are many families in Buda currently fighting this virus and many more in quarantine due to exposure. Pandemic fatigue is only one of many new terms we are learning through this experience. 10 months is a long time, but we need to stay vigilant with wearing masks, washing hands and social distancing.” 

 

According to the latest numbers from the Hays County Health Department,  Buda has close to 230 positive COVID-19 cases. The latest number of COVID cases in Buda and Hays County can be found on the City’s website at www.ci.buda.tx.us/coronavirusinformation.     


“This virus is actively spreading in our communities,” said Hays County Epidemiologist Eric Schneider. “By taking safety measures seriously we can slow it down, but it will take all of us working together.” 


As the holidays approach please consider celebrating virtually or with the people in your household.  This poses the lowest risk for spread. Travel may increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend postponing travel and staying home. For additional recommendations/information from the CDC please visit 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.  For information on holiday celebrations and small gatherings from the CDC please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html.

 

Curative COVID-19 Testing in Buda
 

COVID-19 Testing is available in Buda through Curative. The testing kiosk is set up in the parking lot at Main Street and China Street near the public restrooms across from Main Street Dental. There are some recent changes to the Curative testing sites in Buda and Hays County. 

· They are offering testing by appointment only until further notice

· Curative is now billing insurance, but there is no out-of-pocket cost to the individual being tested.

· Testing continues to be free to anyone without insurance.

· Curative testing locations are closed Dec. 24, 25, 31, and Jan. 1

LOS CASOS COVID CONTINUAN EN BUDA Y HAYS COUNTY

Parmenece Budaful, Saludable, & Use su Mascara


 
BUDA, TX - Dec. 16, 2020 - Los casos de COVID-19 están aumentando en Buda y en todo el condado de Hays. Es un recordatorio de que todavía estamos en una pandemia mundial. Continúe alerta y tome las precauciones necesarias para proteger a sus seres queridos, a nuestros trabajadores de la salud y a la comunidad. Juntos podemos hacer una diferencia "constructiva".

 

Hay tres formas importantes de ayudar a frenar la propagación:

· • Use una máscara para protegerse y proteger a los demás.

· • Manténgase al menos a 6 pies de otras personas que no vivan con usted y evite las multitudes.

· • Lávese las manos con agua y jabón durante 20 segundos o use un desinfectante de manos con al menos un 60% de alcohol.

 

“Los casos de COVID-19 en el condado de Hays se han disparado dramáticamente desde el Día de Acción de Gracias. La ciudad de Buda ha experimentado un aumento de más de 200 nuevos casos en este mismo período. Hay muchas familias en Buda que actualmente luchan contra este virus y muchas más en cuarentena debido a la exposición ”, dijo el Alcalde Lee Urbanovsky. “La fatiga pandémica es solo uno de los muchos términos nuevos que estamos aprendiendo a través de esta experiencia. Diez meses es mucho tiempo, pero debemos estar atentos con el uso de máscaras, el lavado de manos y el distanciamiento social ”.

 

Según las últimas cifras del Departamento de Salud del condado de Hays, Buda tiene cerca de 230 casos positivos de COVID-19. El último número de casos de COVID en Buda y el condado de Hays se puede encontrar en el sitio web de la ciudad en www.ci.buda.tx.us/coronavirusinformation.

 

“Este virus se está propagando activamente en nuestras comunidades”, dijo Eric Schneider, Epidemiólogo del Condado de Hays. "Si nos tomamos en serio las medidas de seguridad, podemos ralentizarlo, pero será necesario que todos trabajemos juntos".

 

A medida que se acercan las fiestas, considere celebrarlo virtualmente o con las personas de su hogar. Esto presenta el menor riesgo de propagación. Viajar puede aumentar sus probabilidades de contagiarse y contraer COVID-19. Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) continúan recomendando posponer el viaje y quedarse en casa.
