A 79-year-old Princeton man with an underlying health condition and COVID-19 died Thursday at a McKinney hospital, according to a report received by Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS). Out of respect for his family, no further personal information is being released.
As of this morning, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) reported 3,707 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Collin County, with 2,758 of those individuals reported to have recovered.
This is the 50th 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. Because the county receives death reports from local sources sooner than the state, county health authorities continue to report COVID-19 related deaths.
The county updates its COVID-19 dashboard each day at 3:30 p.m.
