Editor’s note: This is the latest information reported by the city of Frisco, Collin and Denton counties and the state of Texas through their public dashboards and websites.

The number of active COVID-19 cases in Frisco slightly decreased in the last week.

As of July 15, the city reported 165 active cases—a 10-case decrease from the week prior. Frisco had its peak active cases July 13 with 185 cases.

Among the ZIP codes in Frisco, the 75035 ZIP code had the greatest increase of total confirmed cases with 43 between July 8-15. That brings the total number of cases in that ZIP code since early March to 235.

The second highest number of added cases in the past week is in 75033, which reported 19 additional cases between July 8-15. The total is currently 117 cases.


The 75034 ZIP code added eight cases, and the 75036 ZIP code added 13 cases as between July 8-15.

Data shows that those in the 20-29 age group in both Collin and Denton counties have had the largest number of total COVID-19 cases followed by those ages 30-39 and ages 40-49.


In addition, the data shows 12 deaths in Collin County during the past seven days and four deaths in Denton County. The total number of deaths since tracking began in March is 62 for Collin County and 41 in Denton County.

Among the key indicators being watched by experts is the state’s positivity rate, which was 16.81% on July 14. The rate is averaged over the previous seven days and calculates the ratio of positive new cases compared with the number of tests. Gov. Greg Abbott has previously said that a rate of 10% or more is cause for concern.

Another indicator among health experts is the number of hospitalizations. Collin County reports 222 COVID-19 patients hospitalized July 15, and Denton County 108 hospitalized patients. That number has generally been fluctuating in Collin County and rising in Denton County in recent days.


Collin County has a hospital bed capacity of 2,702. Denton County is reporting 367 available hospital beds out of 1,110 total, 64 available ICU beds out of 161 and 90 available ventilators out of 129 total as of July 15.

Statewide, the number of patients who have tested positive with COVID-19 and are currently hospitalized is 10,471 as of July 15. That compares with 9,610 patients who were hospitalized and had COVID-19 a week ago.
