DENTON (1080 KRLD) - Denton County Public Health  announced one new laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19 in Denton County on Sunday. 

This increases the cumulative, countywide total to 593 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 248 of those now recovered. 

“The low number of cases DCPH is reporting this Saturday and Sunday are likely due to a database update slowing our receipt of new cases, along with little backlog of cases for DCPH to report,” stated Dr. Matt Richardson, Director of DCPH.  “We anticipate any positive cases not provided to us from Saturday through early this next week will be promptly added after the update, which may result in higher numbers later this week.”

The laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 Denton State Supported Living Center  resident total remains 54.
