Collin County and Texas Health and Human Services released updated COVID-19 information.

State officials listed 23 new cases of COVID-19 today, Aug. 25, in Collin County and are still reporting an adjusted total of 10,474 confirmed cases.

The state is also reporting 4,638 active cases and a total of 5,709 have recovered.

There are 97 cases hospitalized and 105 have died from COVID-19 related illness.

Today, hospitalizations throughout the state were reported lower at 4,907 and 925 cases were reported hospitalized in North Texas.

The link below to the Collin County Health Care Services is showing an additional 124 cases on its spreadsheet since yesterday.

New cases reported by Collin County Health Services in eastern Collin County include one in Garland (Collin County), three in Princeton, four in Sachse (Collin County) and three in Wylie. The spreadsheet also shows 18 cases attributed to Collin County that are transferred to the list, or are still being determined if they belong on the list.

An updated breakdown of all cases to date is available at: https://apps.collincountytx.gov/reports/COVID19/Daily%20Report%20by%20City.xlsx

When you click this link an Excel spreadsheet will be created with all reported Collin County cases by city. According to the report, this update is currently managed by Collin County Health Care Services, not the State of Texas.

As of 12:00 AM June 1, 2020, the Department of State Health Services will perform all COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing activities for Collin County’s local health authority. Collin County will be able to access the state system to obtain data and reports for its jurisdiction, but details on the extent of the data and how reports will be distributed will be announced as soon as they are available.
