As of 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 19, 2020, the City of Lubbock confirmed 324 new cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), 216 recoveries and 4 additional deaths. The total number of cases in Lubbock County is 38,891: 3,730 active, 34,656 listed as recovered and 505 total deaths.

As of 4:00 p.m. there are a combined 42 open hospital beds and 11 patients holding for beds at University Medical Center and Covenant Health System. Note that this reflects staffed beds open to receive patients and differs from the available bed count shown on the DSHS and the City of Lubbock dashboards. These dashboards count all available beds, including specialty beds, such as pediatrics, PICU, outpatient, psychiatric and others, as well as hospitalized patients in the 22 county Trauma Service Area.


Lubbock remains above the 15% threshold where the percentage of COVID-19 confirmed patients in regional hospitals as a percentage of available hospital beds. Today's COVID-19 hospitalization percentage is 19.73%. Trauma Service Area B will remain under the additional restrictions outlined under Governor Abbott’s Executive Orders until we remain below 15% for seven consecutive days.
