Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced today that all visitors to essential businesses, essential business employees and riders of public transportation are required to wear a cloth covering starting Saturday.

“There are a lot more cars on the roads this week. That’s a concern. If a few of us slack off on making good personal responsibility decisions we not only put #publichealth at risk but are prolonging this for ourselves and everyone” Jenkins said in a statement.

Dallas County reported seven deaths and 80 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday.

Here is what you need to know about properly wearing a cloth face covering:

  • Cloth face coverings should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Include multiple layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to the shape
  • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face-covering without assistance.
