Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, about 79% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 143 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.
New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.
"I wish everyone a happy Mother's Day. This Mother's Day is different but need not be less meaningful. In order to #FlattenTheCurve, the public health committee is asking everyone to avoid unnecessary crowds, exercise six-foot social distancing, wear cloth coverings when using public transportation and visiting businesses, and continue to practice good hygiene," said Dallas County Judge Clay Lewis Jenkins.
