Some Good COVID-19 News. Yesterday Dallas County reported 171 new cases and no deaths for the first time since May 10.

Collin County reported six new cases yesterday.

Two Senseless Killings in Dallas. Early Monday morning, a man was shot and killed outside an Uptown club. The killer is in custody. Then, around 5 o’clock, in an unrelated incident, a woman was shot and killed as she was getting into her car at her home near the Preston Royal Shopping Center. The killer is at large.
