Editor’s note: This is the latest information reported by Collin County Health Care Services and the state of Texas through their public dashboards and websites.

Additionally, on July 23, Collin County Health Care Services adjusted two reporting categories for COVID-19 cases, identifying and marking duplicates and out-of-county cases that have come from the state’s Texas Health Trace system and have been reported on the Collin County dashboard since June 1. The adjustment will result in a count decrease in confirmed, active and recovered cases reported July 23. No cases will be deleted, only corrected on the county’s public download spreadsheet as a “transfer” or “duplicate.”
