Of the county's cases, 72% of those who have died were over the age of 65. Those aged 25 to 44 make up the largest percentage of people with COVID-19 at 37%.

The health department reported 265 COVID-19 patients are currently occupying hospital beds in the county as of Saturday -- about 5% of capacity. A month ago, on Aug. 26 COVID-19 patients occupied about 5% of Tarrant County hospital beds.
