COVID-19 Updates and Information

August 2, 2021



Projections from UT Southwestern on future COVID-19 hospitalizations - August 2


Mask wearing in public indoor spaces recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - July 27

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising that even if you have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, you should resume wearing masks in public indoor spaces in parts of the country where the virus is surging.  DFW is currently an area of substantial or high transmission. Click here for more information and data from the CDC.





This Dallas County Risk Guidance system/scale for the risk of activities that may put the public at risk of acquiring COVID-19 is based on guidance from the State of Texas, the CDC, and other national and international public health authorities. The system includes four levels of risk: RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, and GREEN. The members of the Public Health Committee will use the latest information on local disease activity to advise county officials on the risk level that applies. Specific indicators for changing risk level can be found on the Dallas County website: Dallas County Key Covid-19 Response Metrics/Indicators.

Dallas County COVID-19 information

The color-coded guidance system was put together under the leadership of the Public Health Committee and the DCHHS Department to provide specific direction to Dallas County residents. Residents are urged to strictly follow the protective measures of each color to maintain their own health and avoid a resurgence of the epidemic that would cause greater harm to individuals, businesses, and communities.
