Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins issued an amended order on March 16, 2020 expanding the previous order to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus and safeguard public health and safety. The order went into effect at 11:59 pm on March 16 and impacts the City of Duncanville.
The order essentially prohibits:
- Mass gatherings of more than 50 people
- Prohibits restaurants from in-house dining, allowing only drive through, pickup and delivery
- Requires bars, lounges, taverns and private clubs to close
The amended order is effective through 11:00 am March 20, 2020, but may be extended based on the evolving health emergency.
