Duncanville Community and Economic Development Corporation Establishes Temporary COVID-19 Business Retention Assistance Program

Duncanville, Texas – The Duncanville Community and Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) has established a Temporary COVID-19 Business Retention Assistance Program for small businesses that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. The DCEDC has agreed to fund $250,000 for the program to assist Duncanville businesses.  

The program is offering grants from $1,000 to $10,000 to aid small businesses with fewer than 20 employees enduring economic hardships due to COVID-19. The grants are provided on a reimbursement basis and can be used for normal operating expenses and payroll. Businesses must have been operating in Duncanville by November 14, 2019, in order to apply for assistance.

“Small businesses are the heart of our community, and the Duncanville Community and Economic Development Corporation is pleased to offer this program to help our small businesses recover from the negative effects caused by the pandemic,” said DCEDC President Steve Dial. “The DCEDC’s goal is to help provide small businesses with assistance in addition to the grants offered by the federal government and other organizations to help bridge the revenue gap created while many of them were forced to close.”

“It’s an honor and privilege to announce the establishment of a recovery initiative for our Duncanville small businesses,” said Duncanville Mayor Barry L. Gordon. “The Duncanville Community and Economic Development Corporation board of directors created a means to provide financial assistance to help weather the economic impact of COVID-19. What’s especially important about this program is that the monies available come directly from the city. This means the application process is managed locally. I commend the DCEDC board of directors for their creativity and concern for our small businesses.”

Applications will be accepted from May 12, 2020 – June 1, 2020.  Businesses can fill out an application online or print one off and submit it to the Economic Development Department at the Duncanville City Hall located at 203 E. Wheatland Rd., Duncanville, Texas 75116. The DCEDC Board will review the applications and award grants based on the economic impact to the community.

Dallas County Reports 202 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases

DALLAS — As of 11:00am May 28, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 202 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 9,587, including 222 deaths. The additional death being reported today includes a man in his 80’s who was a resident of a long-term care facility in the City of Dallas and had been critically ill in an area hospital. He had underlying high-risk health conditions.

Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 222 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.

New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.

Local health experts use hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and ER visits as three of the key indicators in determining the COVID-19 Risk Level (color-coded risk) and corresponding guidelines for activities during our COVID-19 response. Suspected COVID-19 hospitalizations, ICU Admissions, and ER visits continue to remain flat in Dallas County according to information reported to the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council. You can find additional information on risk-level monitoring data here.

“Today’s numbers continue a trend of what we’ve been seeing. There’s a slight uptick today in the number of positive cases but that’s only one day and too small of an uptick to start any sort of a trend. We must continue to practice good decision making and the best way to do that is to go to www.DallasCountyCOVID.org and download the color-coded chart prepared by local health experts as to what activities are safe to perform and how best to perform them. Essentially, their advice is to avoid crowds, maintain 6 foot distancing when out, wear your cloth face covering, not only to protect yourself but as an exercise of the quintessential American value of kindness and respect to others who also find themselves out at the same places you are, and use good hygiene. It’s up to all of us to flatten the curve. Remember, #StayHomeSaveLives,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends taking everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Stay home when you are sick, except to seek medical care
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and help young children to do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Dallas County Reports 190 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases

DALLAS — As of 11:00am May 26, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 190 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 9,188, including 213 deaths.

The additional 2 deaths are being reported today include:

  • A man in his 60’s who was a resident of the City of Garland and had expired in an area hospital ED. He had underlying high risk health conditions.
  • A man in his 70’s who was a resident of a long-term care facility in the City of Mesquite and had underlying high risk health conditions.

Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 213 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.

New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.

“The indicators the public health committee is using to determine our threat level on the color-coded chart are hospitalizations, ER visits for COVID-19 and ICU admissions for COVID-19. They remain flat. In order to move to a lower threat level, the doctors tell me we need to see a 14-day decline in those three factors which unfortunately have yet to materialize. I’m hopeful that with the modest decline in cases we’ve seen over the last 2 weeks, we will begin that decline in hospitalizations, ICU admissions and ER visits soon. Again, how well we do as a community is largely up to all of us making good personal responsibility choices, avoiding crowds, maintaining a 6-foot distance, and wearing a cloth face covering as a quintessential American value of kindness towards others when we are on public transportation or visiting businesses. Good hygiene is extremely important too. Remember, the best way to slow the spread is #StayHomeSaveLives,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

Dallas County Reports 178 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases

DALLAS — As of 11:00am May 24, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 178 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 8,827, including 211 deaths. The additional death being reported today is of a woman in her 70’s who was a resident of a long-term care facility in the City of Mesquite and expired in the facility. She had underlying high risk health conditions.

Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 211 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.

New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.

“Today’s number is similar to yesterday and is markedly lower than two weeks ago. While this is good news, our hospitalizations and ER visits for COVID-19 symptoms remain flat, and unfortunately, our death rate went up last week. All this means the doctors still have us in the red ‘stay home stay safe’ risk level. So please avoid unnecessary crowds, wear your face covering when at businesses, maintain 6-foot distancing, and use good hygiene. Think of the face-covering not as an impingement on your personal liberty but as a quintessential American activity of showing kindness to others. The person at the store next to you may have a loved one who is at high-risk and your face covering protects them if you’re asymptomatic. So please be kind and also please have a wonderful Memorial Day, remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice and also those who serve in our military,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

DALLAS — As of 11:00am May 22, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 204 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 8,477, including 207 deaths.

The additional 4 deaths are being reported today include:

  • A man in his 50’s who was a resident of the City of Dallas and had been critically ill in an area hospital.
  • A woman in her 70’s who was a resident of the City of Dallas and had been critically ill in an area hospital.

New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.

“Today’s number follows a trend of this week having a lower number of positive cases than last week, and our hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and ICU admissions staying relatively flat. Unfortunately, none of this leads to the 14 day decline that the doctors have talked about, so we are still at that red ‘stay home stay safe’ zone. The doctors recommend that although bars and restaurants have opened that we avoid in-person dining, and rather do our celebrating with take-out and at home. If we’ll all make smart decisions, we can make it to a lower threat level where more opportunities for entertainment and commerce are open to us, and where less people are getting sick and dying. It’s up to all of us to flatten the curve. Remember that especially until we see a decline, #StayHomeSavesLives,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

Governor Abbott, CVS Health Announce 44 New COVID-19 Drive-Thru Test Sites In Texas

Governor Greg Abbott today announced that CVS Health will open 44 new COVID-19 test sites at select CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations across Texas. These new sites will utilize self-swab tests and will be available to individuals who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com beginning Friday, May 22 to schedule an appointment.

“Texas continues to rapidly ramp up COVID-19 testing in our communities, and these new drive-thru testing sites provided by CVS Health will further expand access to these tests throughout the state,” said Governor Abbott. “I thank CVS Health for establishing these drive-thru testing sites here in the Lone Star State. We are committed to working with our health partners in the public and private sectors to expand our testing capabilities, protect public health, and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”

“While the large-scale test sites we’ve been operating since early April have proven successful, this new approach allows us to utilize our presence in communities across the country and bring testing closer to home,” said Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health. “Our frontline employees will continue to play a critical role in the testing process, with members of their communities directly benefitting from their dedication and selflessness.”

Patients will be required to stay in their cars and directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions. A CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self swab process to ensure it is done properly. Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.

CVS Health plans to have over 80 drive-thru testing locations in Texas by the end of May. More information about CVS Health and their testing sites can be found at their COVID-19 resource center.

Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 203 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.

“Today’s numbers continue a trend that we’re seeing this week of less positive cases. We also recorded seven more deaths today, bringing our number of total deaths up to 203. Our hospital COVID-19 beds, ICU admissions and emergency room visits for COVID-19 symptoms have remained flat. This information does not change that the most important thing we can do to flatten the curve and get to a place where we can safely do more things and get our economy moving again is to make good personal responsibility decisions. Download the public health committee chart on safe activities based on the current situation and hospital modeling at www.DallasCountyCOVID.org. Avoid crowds, maintain 6 foot distancing, wear a cloth face covering on public transportation and at businesses, plus use good and frequent hygiene. These are the best proven ways to #FlattenTheCurve. Remember, #StayHomeSaveLives,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

Dallas County Reports 186 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases

DALLAS — As of 11:00am May 20, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 186 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 8,090, including 196 deaths.

The additional 5 deaths are being reported today include:

  • A man in his 40’s who was a resident of the City of Irving and had been critically ill in an area hospital.
  • A man in his 50’s who was a resident of the City of Farmers Branch and had been critically ill in an area hospital.
  • A woman in her 70’s who was a resident of the City of Grand Prairie and had been critically ill in an area hospital.
  • A man in his 70’s who was a resident of the City of Mesquite and had been critically ill in an area hospital.
  • A man in his 70’s who was a resident of a long-term care facility in the City of Dallas and expired at an area hospital ED.

Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of the 196 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.

New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.

“Today’s number of cases is markedly lower than what we saw last week and now halfway through the week we’re seeing a healthy decline in the number of new positive cases. We have not seen an appreciable increase in testing yet in Dallas although there has been some increase in testing with the opening of some Walmart, Kroger Health and other sites. So this is somewhat of an apples to apples comparison over the last three weeks. We’ve seen an increase, then a plateau, and now we’re seeing a gradual decline. The doctors tell me to temper my optimism on this and that the key numbers to look at are ICU admissions, hospital beds and deaths but I’d rather see the number of new cases going down than up. Again, how well we do is dependent on the smart, personal decisions of all of us: avoiding unnecessary crowds, maintaining 6-foot distancing, wearing our face coverings on public transportation and at businesses, plus practicing good hygiene. As more and more businesses open, we must focus not on what is legal but on what is safe as advised by the doctors. You can find their advice at www.DallasCountyCOVID.org,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
