As of 2 p.m. May 2, the Garland Health Department (GHD) is reporting 405 confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Garland residents, as well as 12 deaths (see statistics on the Disease Information page):

So far, 186 Garland cases have recovered, meaning at least seven days have passed since symptom onset and the patient has been fever free with respiratory symptom improvement for 72 hours without medication.
