Two Adult Flu Deaths Reported in Tarrant County

Two adult flu deaths have been reported in Tarrant County.

The deaths were voluntarily reported to the county Monday, but officials said they don't yet know when the deaths occurred because adult flu deaths are not required to be reported.

Information about the two patients has not been released.

Kelly Hanes, senior public information officer for Tarrant County Public Health, confirmed the report on Twitter while reminding North Texans to wash their hands and that flu season has arrived.

NBC 5's Jocelyn Lockwood contributed to this report. We we'll update this story with more information as soon as it's available.  As this story is developing, elements may change.
