Four New Braunfels residents have tested positive for COVID-19, Comal County said in a statement on Wednesday.

Three of the cases are in their 40s and one is in their 50s. All are self-isolating.

This brings the county’s total number of COVID-19 cases to 87.

The county also confirmed three more recoveries, bringing the total to 67. With six deaths, the county now has 14 active COVID-19 cases, three of them hospitalized after a previously confirmed home-isolated case was admitted to the hospital.

Wednesday’s Statistics

  • 2,956 tests conducted
  • 87 positive tests
  • 2,749 negative tests
  • 200 results still pending

These numbers include 1,465 nursing home tests taken last week, of which 1,415 were negative and one was positive, with the rest pending. The positive test is an outside medical practitioner who provides services to residents at EdenHill Communities. Because they are not a Comal County resident, their result is not included in the county’s total positive cases.
