DCPH COVID-19 Daily Update

Denton County Public Health (DCPH) announced 114 new cases of COVID-19 in Denton County, of which 96 are active cases.  This increases the cumulative, countywide total to 70,885 COVID-19 cases.  DCPH also reported 525 newly recovered cases of COVID-19, increasing the countywide recovery total to 61,572.

Due to lower numbers of positive labs received on Saturdays and Sundays, DCPH will transition to reporting COVID-19 updates Monday through Friday. DCPH's next COVID-19 case report will be provided Monday, March 22, 2021.

To minimize spread of COVID-19, DCPH urges all community members to:

  • Maintain at least six feet of physical distance in public settings and when around individuals outside of the household 
  • Wear masks or face coverings, which should cover both the nose and mouth, in public settings and when around individuals outside of the household
  • Wash and/or sanitize hands frequently
  • Stay home if you are symptomatic, have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, or are awaiting COVID-19 test results
  • When eligible and available to you, get your COVID-19 vaccine
