As of this morning, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) reported 3,825 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Collin County so far, with 2,918 of those individuals reported to have recovered.

These latest deaths bring the number of fatalities of county residents with COVID-19 reported to county health authorities to 53.

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.
