A total of 3,807 Dallas County residents have lost their lives due to COVID-19 illness, after 13 more deaths were reported Monday.

No other details were released on that patient.

“Today we report both Saturday and Sunday numbers for a total of 502 new COVID-19 cases and 13 deaths,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins in a news release. “We are in a race against time and the virus to reach herd immunity and for enough patriotic people to help themselves and their community by doing their part to get vaccinated before the virus has a chance to mutate outside of the parameters of protection of the current vaccines. The most important thing you can do for your community and yourself is to get vaccinated.”
