Wells said there are 19 people at Lubbock hospitals who have tested positive for COVID-19. Another 26 people at Lubbock hospitals likely have COVID-19, based on their doctor's diagnosis, but tests results are pending. It is important to note not all of these people are Lubbock residents, because of both hospital systems' wide geographic reach.

Through Wednesday, there have been 1,553 COVID-19 tests administered in the city. Of these, there were 124 positive results; this includes some people who are not Lubbock residents, who are not included in the Lubbock case total. 

The city also notified parents at Stepping Stones day care of potential exposure to COVID-19. The day care notified parents a child who attends the day care has a family member who tested positive for COVID-19. The family member reportedly broke quarantine and dropped the child off.
