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.

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.
