Since the end of October, Collin County has seen a sharp spike in COVID-19-related hospitalizations. Before November, the record number of COVID-19 patients occupying Collin County hospital beds was 223 in a single day on July 22 — or 8.2% of county hospital beds.
On Nov. 9, the Collin County Commissioners Court voted to remove data from the county’s COVID-19 dashboard, citing inaccuracy as the reason for the decision. The only data category left on the county COVID-19 dashboard is hospitalizations. The data tracks from June 1 to the present.
While a dashboard showing new cases, active cases, recovered cases, and deaths is no longer available at the county level, McKinney offers some data at the city level.
Young people in their 20s have the highest number of active COVID-19 cases of any age group in McKinney, according to data from McKinney’s COVID-19 dashboard.
Like the rest of Collin County, McKinney has also seen a spike in active cases in the last two weeks. The number of active cases in the city has more than doubled in the last two weeks, increasing from 157 to 367 over a period of 14 days.
