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.

As of July 22, the city of Frisco reported a total 183 active coronavirus cases—an 18-case increase from the week prior.

This comes after the city saw a decrease in COVID-19 cases week over week between July 8-15. Frisco had its peak active cases July 13 with 185 cases.

Among the ZIP codes in Frisco, the 75034 ZIP code had the greatest increase of total confirmed cases with 49 between July 15-22. That brings the total number of cases in that ZIP code since early March to 241.

The second-highest number of added cases in the past week is in 75033, which reported 43 additional cases between July 15-22. The total is currently 160 cases.


The 75035 ZIP code added 32 cases, and the 75036 ZIP code added 16 cases between July 15-22.

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


In addition, the data shows 11 deaths in Collin County during the past seven days and five deaths in Denton County. The total number of deaths since tracking began in March is 72 for Collin County and 46 in Denton County.

Among the key indicators being watched by experts is the number of hospitalizations. Collin County reported 223 COVID-19 patients hospitalized July 21, and Denton County reported 108 hospitalized patients. That number has generally been fluctuating in Collin and Denton counties in recent days.

Collin County has a hospital bed capacity of 2,702. Denton County is reporting 431 available hospital beds out of 1,110 total, 67 available intensive care unit beds out of 161 and 103 available ventilators out of 129 total as of July 22.

Statewide, the number of patients who have tested positive with COVID-19 and are currently hospitalized is 10,893 as of July 22. That compares with 10,471 patients who were hospitalized and had COVID-19 a week ago.
