Addison residents, we hope everyone is doing their part to stay safe and help slow the spread of coronavirus! The Town of Addison issued a COVID-19 Update on Friday, Oct. 2 to inform the public of a few developments, as well as give reminders on how to stay healthy.
In case you were wondering, the Dallas County Health and Human Services did not issue a daily coronavirus case report Thursday, Oct. 1. This was due to a data platform upgrade. On Wednesday, Sept. 30, they reported a total of 249 additional COVID-19 cases. The cumulative confirmed case count in Dallas County is 82,410, including 1,024 confirmed deaths.
To date, Addison has a total of 342 confirmed COVID-19 cases and no deaths, according to Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS). DCHHS releases new numbers every Tuesday and Friday and reports can be found on their website here.
As a reminder, the Executive Order issued by Governor Greg Abbott on July 2 requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces remains in effect. Please continue to also follow these preventative measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
