This increases the cumulative, countywide total to 1,980 confirmed COVID-19 cases. DCPH is also reporting 32 newly recovered cases of COVID-19.

“Prevention is our most effective tool in the fight against COVID-19.  It’s time for all of us to protect our seniors and those with chronic conditions,” stated Dr. Matt Richardson, director of DCPH.  “While the message has not changed, it remains important: wear a mask, wash your hands, practice physical distancing, and stay home if you feel sick.”

DCPH is providing a free drive-thru COVID-19 testing center in Denton on Tuesday. The testing center will be held at the University of North Texas’ Union Circle Parking Garage at 350 S.
