The State of Texas is opening up businesses on May 1st, a day after posting 50 new COVID-19 related deaths (Texas' largest single day total), which directly contradicts federal guidelines for reopening businesses stating that there should be a "downward trajectory of documented cases within a 14-day period or a downward trajectory of positive tests as a percent of total tests within a 14-day period." Dallas County has met neither guideline. In fact, on May 1st, Dallas County posted its largest single day increase of coronavirus-positive infections yet, following data that indicated its largest single-day just a day before.
Heeding warnings from scientists, health professionals and in solidarity with front line workers, Dallas TRHT will not be holding any in-person meetings in May or June 2020. We want you to stay at home, if you can, and reach out to us if you or your community members have any needs.
