The best thing to do is cut off all the dead foliage - the clumps will
develop new shoots in a week or two.
This is normal and as long as your plants have some size to them, the freeze
will do them no real long term harm.

Your clumps this year may be thicker than normal with smaller leaves. But I
have also had record sized leaves after a hard freeze.

Thankfully Hosta are adaptable plants and they survive these late freezes
much better than a number of other plants.
