Dallas City Manager puts emergency regulations in place
Dallas City Manager T.C. Broadnax has put regulations in place in accordance to Section 14B of the Dallas City Code to protect life and property and preserve critical resources while a state of disaster is in effect.
The emergency regulations continue to prohibit public or private gatherings of more than 500 people anywhere in the city of Dallas. All public, private and commercial laboratories operating in Dallas performing COVID-19 testing shall report the number of tests performed, including any positive tests, on a daily basis.
The regulations also allow the suspension and modification of any ordinance or regulations that would prevent temporary sheltering and housing by the City.
“The health and safety of the Dallas community continues to be a priority as we navigate this emergency and response to COVID-19,” said Broadnax. “We are continuing to coordinate with our health authority, Dallas County Health and Human Services, to take the appropriate measures to protect the public and slow the spread of the virus.”
These regulations are effective immediately and continue until they are either rescinded or until they expire.
