A 77-year-old Melissa woman with COVID-19 and an underlying health condition Wednesday at a McKinney hospital, according to a report received today by Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS). Out of respect for her family, no further personal information is being released.

As of this morning, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) reported 2,496 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Collin County, with 1,384 of those individuals reported to have recovered.

This is the 41st fatality of a county resident with COVID-19 reported to county health authorities.

DSHS assumed all new case reporting and contact tracing for Collin County on June 1. Total figures for active cases in Collin County are a blend of state-generated reports, plus any active cases before June 1 that the county is still overseeing. Because the county receives death reports from local sources sooner than the state does, county health authorities will continue to report COVID-19 related deaths.
