LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) — The following is a news release from the City of Lubbock:

As of 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 27, 2021, the City of Lubbock confirmed 25 new cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), 70 recoveries and 1 additional death. The total number of cases in Lubbock County is 48,147: 367 active, 47,073 listed as recovered and 707 total deaths.

Since the 4:00 p.m. cut off yesterday, 1 case was identified as a duplicate or transferred to the correct jurisdiction. This case has been adjusted into the cumulative totals.

As of 4:00 p.m. there are a combined 8 open hospital beds and 14 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 under the 15% threshold where the percentage of COVID-19 confirmed patients in regional hospitals as a percentage of available hospital beds. Yesterday’s COVID-19 hospitalization percentage was 4.20%. Trauma Service Area B will be under lessened restrictions outlined under Governor Abbott’s Executive Orders unless we go above 15% for seven consecutive days.
