Dallas County, TX to Require Face Coverings

Starting Saturday, people in Dallas County will be required to wear a cloth covering over their mouth and nose or risk facing a steep fine, this according to county officials who confirmed another 80 positive cases of COVID-19 on Thursday along with the deaths of seven more seniors, including three residents of long-term care facilities.

The county's amended Shelter in Place order said violations, which include the face coverings as of midnight Saturday, could be punishable by a fine up to $1,000 and/or jail time.

"Because an infected person can transmit the COVID-19 virus to others before showing any symptoms, the covering of a person’s nose and mouth is necessary to help slow the spread of the virus. Effective at 11:59 p.m. on April 17, 2020, to the greatest extent possible all persons over the age of two (2) shall wear some form of covering over their nose and mouth, such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandanna or handkerchief, when patronizing an Essential Business or using public transportation," the order said.
