CDC Fact Sheet (2 pages)  updated 3-16-2020

Monday, June 09, 2020; 3:45 p.m. Update

Collin County IT staff has tapped into state data to help report out COVID-19 case counts daily for cities and towns in Collin County. The format is matched to what they have been sending us for months – and, for now, it is a “blend” of Collin County cases being monitored by the local health department, with data coming down from the state’s new Texas Health Trace System (DSHS). Once the County health care staff have wrapped up their case load as of May 31, 2020, the state will be the sole source of data, except for deaths. The County will continue to report local COVID-19 related deaths because they get them sooner than the state does.

New Cases are a little more complicated at the moment, but County staff is still working that out with DSHS and their reporting schedule(s).

WHAT’s CHANGED? Instead of emailing out hundreds of copies of the reports across the county, the County has gotten staff to set up a 3:30 p.m. automated report in Excel for your use, called, “Daily Report By City & Zip.”  Here is the link to the dashboard:  https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/c00baf45f12a4899aae1c812e29d6cde

Below is a screenchot of where to find the Daily Report spreadsheet.

Tuesday, May 26, 2020; 3:30 p.m. Update

 

The Collin County Health Care Services Department was recently notified that the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will assume all case management, contact tracing, and reporting duties related to new Collin County COVID-19 cases beginning May 26, 2020. Collin County Health Care Services had been anticipating this change, but was uncertain when the transition would take place.

 

 

Collin County Health Care Services staff will continue monitoring the 319 current cases and the 2024 current PUMs until they are fully recovered.

 

 

DSHS will begin investigating, monitoring, and tracing all new cases starting May 26, 2020. As a result of this change, Collin County will no longer have new case data to provide each day. Instead, Collin County case details will be reported on the Texas DSHS COVID-19 dashboard.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, April 17, 2020 From Collin County

County reports death of 73-year-old Fairview man with COVID-19

(McKINNEY, Texas) – A 73-year-old Fairview man with underlying health conditions and COVID-19 died in a local hospital this morning, according to Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS). Out of respect for his family, no further personal information will be released. 

“We are sad to learn of the death of another member of our Collin County community today,” said Collin County Judge Chris Hill. “All of us grieve together with his family during this difficult time.”

As of this afternoon, CCHCS reported 505 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among Collin County residents, with 304 of those individuals reported to have recovered, and 17 hospitalized. Today’s death marks the twelfth death reported to the county of individuals with COVID-19.

Patients diagnosed with COVID-19 have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Additionally, some patients have experienced more severe symptoms and health complications. Should individuals experience more severe symptoms, CCHCS encourages individuals to call their health care provider or emergency department prior to arrival to limit exposure.

Visit www.collincountytx.gov for additional local information regarding COVID-19, including information for individuals, businesses, and healthcare providers.
