Dallas County Moves COVID-19 Threat to Red — ‘High Risk’ of Community Transmission

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced late Tuesday that the county has increased its COVID-19 threat level to red, in response to the “frightening trajectory” of cases.

Jenkins announced the change on Twitter shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, saying the county’s Public Health Committee had voted unanimously to increase the threat level to red, meaning there is a high risk of community transmission.

Residents should stay home and only travel for essential needs, according to Dallas County’s guidelines for the red level — the highest of its color-coded threat assessment system.

The change comes as cases and hospitalizations soar, alongside the prominence of the more-contagious delta variant of coronavirus. More information about the Dallas County coronavirus risk level change can be found in this recent article of The Dallas Morning News.
