As of 11:00am June 6, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 289 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 11,830, including 262 deaths.
The additional 2 deaths being reported today include:
Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% 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, more than two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have any 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 262 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.
Local health experts use hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and ER visits as three of the key indicators in determining the COVID-19 Risk Level (color-coded risk) and corresponding guidelines for activities during our COVID-19 response. Suspected COVID-19 hospitalizations, ICU Admissions, and ER visits continue to remain flat in Dallas County according to information reported to the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council.
We have seen a decrease in the daily hospital census for numbers reported on June 5th, to around 250 individuals. We've had a census of around 300 COVID-19 patients in Dallas County hospitals over the past week prior to this one day decrease. Additionally, approximately 22% of emergency room visits in Dallas County for a 24 hour period ending Friday, June 5th, representing some 317 patients, were for COVID-19 like symptoms. You can find additional information on risk-level monitoring data here.
I cannot stress to you how important it is that you maintain social distancing when in crowds, and this includes outdoor crowds, even when wearing a face covering. If you have participated in protests or other large gatherings, please get tested. The tests are performed by Parkland and your information will not be shared with law enforcement. Know your status to protect yourself, your family, and the community. It's up to all of us to #FlattenTheCurve and the best way to do that is to #StayHomeSaveLives," said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
