Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

 

July 23 Update: Collin County Public Health announced that they will adjust two reporting categories for COVID-19 starting today, identifying and marking duplicates and out-of-county cases that were previously reported on their dashboard. The adjustment will result in a count decrease in total, recovered, and active cases reported out today. No cases will be deleted, only corrected on the public download spreadsheet as “transfer” or “duplicate.” Collin County only reports cases confirmed by a positive lab report. None of the categories mentioned above include so‐called “probable” cases.

As of June 1, 2020, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) began handling all COVID-19 and contact tracing activities for Collin County. Most of the data presented on the Collin County Dashboard comes directly from DSHS’ Texas Health Trace system – not Collin County’s public health department:
