Projections from UT Southwestern on future COVID-19 hospitalizations in Dallas County - August 17



Portions of August 17 commentary

"Hospitalizations have declined slightly overall in the region, driven by declining admissions in those over 65, though pediatric admissions have increased. Over the next several weeks, the total number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 is expected to remain relatively flat in Dallas and Tarrant County. The Dallas County Health and Human Services COVID-19 risk level is still orange, and Tarrant County Public Heath's advisory is still high. Indoor masking is strongly encourage for everyone at this time.  Based on these trends, our medium-term forecast predicts that hospitalizations are still on a longer uptrend and could return to elevated levels by early autumn."

"Based on current CDC "COVID-19 Community Levels" guidance, which considers hospital admissions and capacity, Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin Counties are now high risk, meaning that indoor masking is currently recommended for everyone."
