Map of Texas with Dallas County highlighted in red.

Dallas County revised its Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCFs) Order, originally issued April 7 and updated on April 18, extending its expiration date to May 15. The updated order also makes the following changes:

  • Currently, LTCFs that have confirmed cases of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cannot accept new patients unless certain conditions are met. The revised order allows LTCFs to accept a new patient, if that patient is being transferred from a facility closed by the state.
  • Revises social distancing guidelines.
