"Today we report 1,183 new cases and 10 deaths. This is a one-day total. Once again, we have zero staffed pediatric ICU beds for a 19 county area and blank staffed ICU beds for adults in the 19 county region. Today once again a Texas court reaffirmed the Authority of local government to enact lifesaving measures in requiring masking in indoor settings. The current order in Dallas county, which has not been rescinded by any court requires masking in pre-K through twelfth grade public schools and public institutes of higher education as well as childcare facilities; commercial entities and county buildings. This is not only the law in Dallas county but is unquestionably one of the two most important things we can do to slow the spread of COVID while we work to get more staffing, to take care of the surge at our hospitals. Masking and vaccination are the keys to abating the dangerous surge of Delta and ultimately winning the battle against COVID-19 and it is a battle against the virus and not one another. We are all part of the human race and we all benefit from working together to protect one another to defeat COVID.," said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

Specific Guidance for the Public:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends taking everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don't live in your household.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others and continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to seek medical care
  • Wash your hands often and with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and help young children to do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve, not your hands. Immediately wash your hands.
  • Monitor your health daily. Be alert for symptoms. Take your temperature and follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
