Projections from UT Southwestern on future COVID-19 hospitalizations in Dallas County - September 7

Note:  Due to a lack of area data, UT Southwestern is discontinuing its forecasting reports  



Portions of September 7 commentary

"Hospitalizations continue to decline in the region, driven by declining admissions among older patient groups, though the rate of decline is slowing, and pediatric admissions remain elevated. Over the next several weeks, the total number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 is expected to remain relatively flat in Dallas and Tarrant Counties.  The Dallas County Health and Human Services COVID-19 risk level is still orange, and Tarrant County Public Heath's advisory is still high. Infection rates are still elevated, and the Rt value is now around 1, indicating transmission speeds are rising again.  Test positivity rates are still high and are increasing in school-aged groups. Based on these trends, our medium-term forecast predicts that hospitalization growth may resume in the fall."

"Based on current CDC "COVID-19 Community Levels" guidance, which considers hospital admissions and capacity, Dallas, Denton and Collin Counties are low risk, and Trarrant County is high risk."


Dallas County Guidance Color
