The city of Sachse has reported 1,977 COVID-19 cases through today. New cases for Dallas County residents were a 25, 45 and 47-year-old female and a 11 and 16-year-old male. Cases for Collin County include a 24-year-old female and a 10 and 43-year-old male.

Four cases of the SARS-CoV-2 variant B.1.1.7 have been identified in residents of Dallas County who did not have recent travel outside of the US. The provisional seven-day average of daily new confirmed and probable cases (by date of test collection) for CDC week 4 was 1,381, which is a rate of 52.4 daily new cases per 100,000 residents. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 remains high, with 24.7% of symptomatic patients presenting to area hospitals testing positive in week 2 (week ending 1/30/21).

During the past 30 days, there were 7,012 COVID-19 cases in school-aged children and staff reported from 713 separate K-12 schools in Dallas County. Reports state that 420 children in Dallas County under the age of 18 have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are currently 103 active long-term care facility outbreaks. Accumulative total of 4,044 residents and 2,263 healthcare workers in long-term facilities in Dallas have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Of these, 876 have been hospitalized and 513 have died. About 22% of all deaths reported to date have been associated with long-term care facilities. Sixteen outbreaks of COVID-19 in congregate-living facilities (e.g. homeless shelters, group homes, and halfway homes) have been reported in the past 30 days. A cumulative total of 383 residents and 191 staff members in these types of facilities in Dallas have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Of all confirmed cases requiring hospitalization to date, more than two-thirds have been under 65 years of age. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with more detailed summary reports updated Tuesday and Friday evenings are available at: https://www.dallascounty.org/departments/dchhs/2019-novel-coronavirus/daily-updates.php

Local health experts use hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and ER visits as three of the key indicators as part of determining the COVID-19 Risk Level (color-coded risk) and corresponding guidelines for activities during our COVID-19 response. There were 750 COVID-19 patients in acute care in Dallas County for the period ending on Wednesday, February 10. The number of emergency room visits for COVID-19 like symptoms in Dallas County was 460 for the same time period, which represents around 18 percent of all emergency department visits in the county according to information reported to the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council. Updated modeling from UTSW shows hospitalizations between 420-720 by February 19. County officials are encouraged by these decreases, but COVID hospitalizations are still having a substantial impact on our health care systems.

“Today we announce 45 additional deaths and 1,020 new COVID-19 cases. Although our case numbers are declining, our deaths will continue to be high for some time due to the extremely high number of cases that we experienced in the preceding months and weeks. 

The decisions we make today will determine what our COVID case numbers are in two weeks and what our death numbers are in the in the weeks that follow. This is why we must continue to make good choices and follow doctors’ advice and the science. The facts are now clear: masks protect from the spread of COVID 19 as does avoiding exposure to people outside your home. Brighter days are ahead, but we must maintain our vigilance in the fight against COVID-19 to keep ourselves, our community, and our country as strong as possible until the vaccine can help us to reach herd immunity.

Our vaccine distribution this week has been hampered by logistical delays and now the weather. Please know that if you are seeking your second dose, we will get you that second dose as soon as possible. Please stay tuned to social media and the bottom scroll of your television for updates on when our vaccine operations will run during these the upcoming ice and snow storms. We will not be able to run vaccine operations if it is not safe for our patients to travel to the vaccine site but will run vaccine operation when the weather permits. I’m sorry for the problems and anxiety these delays are causing but know that our employees and our volunteers are committed to getting you your shot just as soon as possible,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
