Kerr County's 11th October COVID-19 death reported

Latest report happened nearly a month ago, showing the delay in reporting numbers for fatalities.

The Texas Department of State Health Services acknowledged Kerr County's 11th death related to COVID-19 in October — nearly a month later.

On Thursday, DSHS updated its COVID-19 fatality spreadsheet to show a Kerr County resident died on on Oct. 6 — the 10th death reported by DSHS. The Lead's tally is 11 because it remains unclear if DSHS counts the deaths at Peterson Regional Medical Center. DSHS does not include deaths at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, the Kerrville State Hospital and the U.S. Veteran's Affairs Medical Center in Kerrville.

Peterson Health had not updated its numbers on Thursday, but it has consistently shown a decrease in key areas — hospitalizations, including stays in the intensive care unit, and the numbers of positive cases. DSHS said there were 66 active cases in Kerr County, but the accuracy of that statistic as a real-time metric is unclear.

  • Oct. 1, as reported by Texas Department of State Health Services.
