Today’s numbers show a trend of more positive COVID-19 cases. While this may be because of increased testing, it does not mean it is okay to abandon the necessary precautionary measures that could help keep you safe and healthy.
It is important we begin to flatten the curve. The best way to do this is by staying home as often as possible.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourage residents to:
- Stay home when you are sick, except to seek medical care.
- Wash your hands 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- base 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 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.
For anyone who may have been in contact with the virus, please contact the Dallas County hotline at 972-692-2780.
