As of April 16, Dallas County requires the wearing of a covering over the nose and mouth when an individual must visit an essential business or use public transportation (including taxis or ride shares). This does not apply to persons riding in a personal vehicle, engaging in appropriately distanced outdoor activity, or when such a covering causes a safety or health threat. It is important to remember that wearing a mask or face covering is NOT a substitute for maintaining 6-feet social distancing and hand washing. For more details, visit the Dallas County website.
