“Deaths will be high for at least the next two weeks as they are the result of the high number of cases and spread in the community in December and January,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. “We must continue to make good choices and lower our numbers. We are seeing some improved numbers. Our hospitalizations are at 914 for today, and they dipped below 1,000 on Friday for the first time in several weeks.”
