MIS-C Cases In Dallas County

During the past 30 days, there were 7,012 COVID-19 cases in school-aged children and staff reported from 713 separate K-12 schools in Dallas County. A total of 420 children in Dallas County under 18 years of age have been hospitalized since the beginning of the pandemic, including 32 patients diagnosed with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in children (MIS-C).

“Today we report another 1,231 positive COVID cases and 37 deaths, including a man in his 20’s with no underlying high risk health conditions. We must continue to wear our masks, wash our hands, keep six feet of distance, and avoid crowds at least until we reach herd immunity. These small sacrifices will help protect ourselves, our loved ones, and those in our community from the virus until we reach that point.

We received good news today that our site at Fair Park was selected as a federal mass vaccination site that will begin the week of February 22. Thank you to the Biden Administration for providing these much needed resources for our community, especially our hard hit areas,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
