FRISCO Weekly COVID-19 Update: August 8 - 14, 2020

(August 14, 2020) Today, Collin County authorities received word the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is updating its databases. As a result, today’s Collin County dashboard reflects a backlog of cases.  Additionally, the DSHS system will be offline tonight for maintenance. We’ve been advised to expect a fluctuation of numbers over the next few days while upgrades to the system stabilize.

Frisco added 240 cumulative cases, including 55 recoveries and 2 deaths between August 8-14. Please note (as mentioned above): Some of the ‘240’ cases may be previously unreported and ‘older’ cases.  That means Frisco has 476 active cases, 659 recoveries and 8 deaths between both Collin and Denton counties.  

Frisco reminds everyone to take advantage of the free, saliva test being offered by the state, here at a testing site in Frisco.  Check out FriscoTexas.gov/coronavirus for more information on this testing and more information about the situation in Frisco.

This Frisco table provides more detailed information and as a reminder the City of Frisco’s Public Health Awareness dashboard provides a graphical representation of data contained in the table and access to the dashboards from both counties and the State of Texas.
