COVID-19 Local Cases

The City continues to update the website with the most current information available; however, the increase in cases across the state has delayed communication to local jurisdictions. Additionally, counties are reporting numbers differently which may cause confusion. To provide more clarity, we have created the following breakdown of cases by county in the Schertz area. This information is current as of the updated date and times listed below.

COUNTY CASE COUNTS - UPDATED AS OF 7/14/2020 5:15 pM 

Guadalupe County 

Guadalupe County is reporting Confirmed Cases and Probable/Pending Cases. A Pending Case is a confirmed positive case that is PENDING location verification. Once the location of the case is verified by DSHS, the County and City are notified. The case then moves from a Pending Case to a Confirmed Case. It is likely that some of the Pending Cases in Guadalupe County are located in Schertz, however, due to the high volume of cases it could take several weeks before we receive confirmation and add those cases to the City’s case count. 

A probable case is one that meets the one of the following criteria:  

  • A case that meets clinical criteria and is linked to a confirmed case  
  • A case that meets clinical criteria and has a positive antigen or antibody test 
  • A case that is linked and has a positive antigen or antibody test

SCHERTZ CASE COUNTS - UPDATED AS OF 7/13/2020 4:45 PM 

The City continues to update the website with the most current information available; however, the increase in cases across the state has delayed communication to local jurisdictions. This reporting challenge has resulted in the City receiving delayed confirmation of active and recovered cases. It is more likely that due to these delays we will receive more recovered cases instead of active cases over the coming weeks. Situations like this will continue to occur as case counts increase and overwhelm the state. We will continue to update our case counts as Confirmed Cases become known to the City.
