Every Tuesday and Thursday Dallas County puts out a comprehensive COVID-19 summary which also includes cases by city:  Click here for the most current summary issued April 7, 2020

Dallas County also takes the case numbers and arranges them in a map by zip code. Click here for the April 6th map.

Finally, Dallas County has forwarded a chart showing COVID-19 cases in the county broken down by Race/Ethnicity. This is the first that we’ve seen of this type of breakdown.

Please note, that while we consistently share this County data, some have been using it to come to inaccurate conclusions. We spoke directly to Judge Clay Jenkins and the other key County Officials leading the COVID-19 fight on Monday and informed them that some residents are using the case numbers like scorecards to determine compliance or success of a city.  We were told that going by numbers and city boundaries to judge a city’s compliance or response is totally inaccurate and shows a lack of understanding about how pandemics work. A pandemic knows no geographical boundaries and the situation needs to be viewed in a much broader regional sense. Case numbers will constantly change and shift within a region. Additionally, all of the cities in Dallas County are operating under the same exact orders (Governor’s Orders, County Orders, and identical City Orders) and are taking the same containment and enforcement steps. All encounter the same challenges and limits. The fight is coordinated and uniform.
