Projections from UT Southwestern on future COVID-19 hospitalizations in Dallas County - May 18


Portions of May 18 commentary

"The number of people hospitalized in the region has stabilized at low levels and is expected to remain so for the next several weeks. The local Rt value, which represents how effectively the virus is spreading, is now around 1 in Dallas and Tarrant County. Test positivity rates are increasing; however total testing volumes are near all-time lows. Based on these trends, our medium-term forecast predicts that hospitalizations should remain at low levels throughout the spring but may rise again this summer.  Masking behavior is at the lowest levels observed since the start of the pandemic."  

"Based on current CDC "COVID-19 Community Levels" guidance, Dallas, Tarrant, Denton and Collin Counties are currently low risk."


Dallas County Guidance



The color-coded guidance system was put together under the leadership of the Public Health Committee and the DCHHS Department to provide specific direction to Dallas County residents.
