Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: June 2, 2020
Collin County Commissioners voted to transfer the responsibility for COVID-19 case investigations, contact tracing and daily reporting to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). DSHS began investigating, monitoring and tracing all new cases on June 1. As a result of this change, new Collin County case details will be reported on the
Texas DSHS COVID-19 dashboard
Collin County will access the state system to obtain data and reports, but details on the extent of the data and how reports are distributed will be announced later. At this time, the City of Plano does not have Plano-specific data for daily reporting.
