"Today we report 824 new cases and 11 deaths. Our current average of daily new cases remains high and it is projected to continue to increase, unless we take additional measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Delta variant is now the dominant variant of COVID-19 in North Texas, with UTSW data suggesting that 97% of new cases are due to this variant. Given the high transmissibility of this variant, it is important that we once again take COVID-19 as seriously as we did at the start of the pandemic. Vaccines continue to be highly effective at keeping people out of the hospital. If you haven't yet, please get vaccinated as soon as possible and encourage your friends and loved ones to do the same," 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.
