Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reported 1,696 new COVID-19 cases and six deaths on Monday.


North Texas hospitals have 3,425 patients with COVID-19, which is down 208 from Friday, representing 24.1 percent of available bed capacity. COVID-19 patients account for 44.2 percent of adult ICU patients, reports DFW Hospital Council CEO and President Steve Love.

With full approval from the FDA, Moderna vaccine is now officially recognized, NBC DFW reports. Johnson & Johnson hasn’t applied for full approval of its Covid-19 vaccine. Read more here.
