Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS) reported two deaths of Collin County residents with COVID-19, both of whom also had underlying health conditions. A 77-year-old Fairview man died June 20 at a Dallas hospital, and a Plano man, 61, died at his home on Monday.  Out of respect for their families, 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.

These are the 48th and 49th fatalities of county residents 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.
