An 89-year-old Plano woman with COVID-19 and an underlying health condition died Tuesday evening at a Plano memory care facility, 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 2,997 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Collin County, with 2,265 of those individuals reported to have recovered.
This is the 43rd fatality of a county resident with COVID-19 reported to county health authorities. The woman was a resident of Arbor Hills Memory Care in Plano.
For clarity, DSHS assumed all new case reporting and contact tracing for Collin County on June 1. Because the county receives death reports from local sources sooner than the state, county health authorities continue to report COVID-19 related deaths.
