City of Lubbock confirmed 82 Additional COVID-19 Cases, 2 Deaths


As of 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 24, 2021, the City of Lubbock confirmed 82 new cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), 133 recoveries and 2 additional deaths. The total number of cases in Lubbock County is 46,241: 2,453 active, 43,138 listed as recovered and 650 total deaths.


Since the 4:00 yesterday, 4 cases were identified as duplicates or transferred to the correct jurisdiction. These are reflected in the cumulative totals.


As of 4:00 p.m. there are a combined 42 open hospital beds and 18 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 was not available at time of release. 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.
