September 15th: Important COVID-19 Updates from Dallas County & the State of Texas

County State United Reverse Negative

On September 15, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services reported 190 total confirmed cases of COVID-19. But since 68 cases were backlogged from older months and came to the County via the State’s ELR System, the actual confirmed number for real-time cases today is just 122. There were also 3 deaths. 

Let’s continue to act to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please wear a mask in public that covers your mouth and nose. Avoid people who are not wearing masks since they could be carrying Coronavirus without showing symptoms. Maintain a safe social distance of six feet when in public. And keep your hands clean and sanitized.
