    DALLAS (NBC DFW) - COVID-19 cases have more than tripled at Texas daycare centers during the past four weeks, a troubling trend that officials worry will spill over into schools as classrooms begin to re-open to students and teachers.

    Numbers from the Texas Department of State Health Services obtained by NBC 5 Investigates showed that cases connected to daycares have exploded, from 817 cases at the end of June to 2,810 cases today, the final day of July.

    About two-thirds of those cases are children, the rest staff, NBC 5 Investigates has learned.

    At least 1,678 different child care centers have seen at least one case.
