Both patients, one a 47-year-old woman and the other a 56-year-old man, are in Plano. Neither has any underlying health conditions and both are self-isolating in their homes, according to the health department.

On Friday, the health department reported the fifth case -- a 40-year-old Frisco woman -- had tested presumptive positive.

That person has no underlying medical conditions and remains in self-quarantine at her home. The woman had not recently traveled out of state, so health officials are working to determine whether the case was spread by someone in the community, a news release said.

Collin County Health says there are 60 people being monitored as of Sunday afternoon.

Collin County's most recent presumptive positive case comes following disaster declarations by Dallas and Tarrant counties. Collin County has not declared a health emergency as of Friday.
