“With the beautiful weather outside, now’s the time to gather with family and friends in the outdoor settings. Outdoors are safer than indoors and indoors with cross ventilation from opposing windows or doors being opened are safer than indoors with a conventional HVAC only. Although the numbers for COVID are low and the chance of COVID spread is in a range that is as low as it’s been, the risk is not zero and outdoor settings provide the best opportunity for safe group meetings. Also remember, if you have not had your third shot, there’s no question that everyone needs a third shot, according to the medical providers. You can find a location near you at Vaccines.gov,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

“According to the Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation, we’ve seen a 15 percent increase in COVID-19 cases for the week ending April 22nd. Our replication factor is just above one, which means instead of case counts going down, they’re going to go up slightly. We’ve been in the green, the lowest color of readiness for COVID since last Friday. And this increase alone will not change those numbers. It’s still a time when you should enjoy more activities safely due to low spread. But with the numbers increasing, a little prudence goes a long way. For instance, outdoors for groups is better than indoors. If you’ve been vaccinated, but not boosted, it’s a good time to get your booster. You can still get free vaccination and free boosters and find those near you at COVID.gov,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

If you had a Moderna or a Pfizer vaccine, or if you had a Johnson & Johnson vaccine, plus at least one booster. For people over the age of 50, a fourth booster is available and is recommended for anyone who is immunocompromised or over 60 years old within that group. If you are not sure about a fourth shot, check with your doctor. In order to take full advantage of the new normal, get vaccinated and get boosted.
