Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reported 182 total cases on Monday, though 84 of them were part of the state’s continued backlog. Only 98 were from August tests. He encouraged the community to not let up with its social distancing and masking practices.

In a Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation conducted a poll, 44 percent of respondents said Texas opened up too quickly, 28 percent said the state opened at the right time, and 28 percent said too slowly. But there was a divide with white residents, as 55 percent of Latino and 61 percent of Black respondents said the state opened up too early, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Statewide, Texas is reporting the lowest number of hospitalizations in eight weeks, The Texas Tribune reports. There are around 5,200 Texans in the hospital because of COVID-19 right now.

At Parkland Hospital, a mother transmitted COVID-19 to her unborn baby, KERA reports. The baby was born prematurely, but showed no signs of COVID-19 at first. On her second day of life, she began to show symptoms and tested positive. She is believed to be the first Texas baby to contract the virus while in the womb.
