Editor’s note: This article reflects the most recent information reported by the city of Plano, Collin County and the state of Texas through their public reports and dashboards at the time of its posting.

In the week since Plano paused its reporting Aug. 27, there have been 14 new coronavirus cases, according to a Sept. 3 release from the city.

Active cases in Plano dropped from 1,151 to 139 in the same time frame. This is due to investigators working through a backlog of Collin County cases that were previously marked as active, the release said.

Those aged 20-29 years old continue to have the highest rate of cases in Plano, with 678 of the city's 3,160 total cases. Those in their 40s follow with the second-highest number, nearly 550 cases.

There was one additional death in Plano reported over the last week, a resident in their 80s. The city total is now 32 deaths since reporting began in March.


In Collin County, data shows 413 cases from Aug. 27-Sept. 3, with 79 new cases reported Sept. 3.

Active cases for the county dropped by thousands due to the backlog investigation. Reported numbers for Sept. 3 show 625 active cases in Collin County.
