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.
