Denton County confirmed more than 200 more locals had been infected with the coronavirus by Wednesday afternoon, which broke the three-month record.
The county, much like the rest of the country, was in the midst of a freefall in most pandemic metrics until the past few weeks when cases began to climb.
Denton County Public Health also announced Wednesday that an estimated 2,185 locals were actively infected with the virus, which is the largest number since June 10.
