Health officials also reported 413 new cases of COVID-19.

The total number of positive cases in the county now stands at 43,439. There have also been a total of 567 deaths related to COVID-19.

The county said there are record high numbers of COVID-19 patients in Dallas County hospitals, with 831 people in acute care for the period ending July 21.

Wednesday is the second day in a row where the number of new confirmed COVID-19 cases was below 1,000 in Dallas County. That comes after an 18-day stretch of days with 1,000 or more positive cases reported.

"Today we see a record for deaths reported in one day but also a very good number on the number of positive cases reported. It’s too early to say if this is the beginning of a trend or some anomaly but we were expecting good results from mask compliance after most persons visiting businesses and around others outside their home have been wearing their mask," said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. "The wearing of masks is the single most effective tool to prevent the spread of coronavirus when people congregate outside their homes and increase the risk of spread."

The virus is now the third leading cause of death in the county behind heart disease and cancers.

A new COVID-19 testing location opened Monday at Mountain View College at 4849 West Illinois Ave. The center is in partnership with the Texas Division of Emergency Management and the city of Dallas.

The center will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. There are no residency requirements to be tested at the location, according to Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

Of cases requiring hospitalization, more than two-thirds have been under 65, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19.
