The Dallas County Health Department is reporting no new confirmed COVID-19 deaths Monday along with 98 new cases of the virus, the lowest number reported since April 27. Meanwhile, the county’s 7-day average continues to drop.
Dallas County Health and Human Services reported an additional 182 cases of the virus Monday, but only 98 of them were new. The remaining cases were part of the backlog reported by the Texas Department of State Health Services including 18 from March, 43 from April and 23 from May.
“This is the first time we’ve been under 100 cases on any day since April 27. While this is great news, it is the result of much hard work on your part: wearing your mask, maintaining six-foot distancing, washing your hands regularly, forgoing unnecessary trips, and staying away from anyone outside you family or any indoor activity outside your family where people cannot wear a mask one hundred percent of the time. We must continue to make these smart decisions for this trend to continue. That’s the best way for less people to get sick, more businesses to stay open and our children to get back to school sooner rather than later,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
