Dallas Businesses Struggling with New Covid Guidelines

          Dallas Restaurants were required to immediately reduce their dining capacity to 50% according to an Eater Dallas article published on december 3rd. In it they say:


As new coronavirus cases and related hospitalizations surge across the country, Dallas County restaurants will ‘immediately’ have to limit their capacity back to 50 percent. Dallas County judge Clay Jenkins announced in a tweet on Thursday afternoon that the county has officially surpassed the 15 percent hospital utilization threshold outlined in Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order that went into effect on October 14. Prior to the rollback, restaurants are allowed to seat diners at up to 75 percent of their typical occupancy. Bars, which have not been allowed to reopen in Dallas County, will remain closed. Other businesses impacted by the rollback include gyms, museums, retail stores, and office facilities.”


         Almost immediately, Dallas businesses struggled as an article from NBC 5 DFW said on December 4th. In it they say:


Dallas businesses worked to comply Friday with the first day of a new round of restrictions to combat the coronavirus. Because of high hospitalization rates for the virus, bars were told they must close and businesses considered non-essential were to cut back to 50% occupancy from 75%. In Oak Cliff, landlord Amanda Moreno Lake said she was concerned that additional limits on customers in stores may force more of her tenants to close their doors.”

With cases still on the rise both in Dallas and the rest of the country, easing of Covid guidelines looks nowhere in reach and these strict rules may follow us into the New Year.
