Dallas County raised its COVID-19 risk level to yellow on Wednesday as North Texas health authorities continue to report rising coronavirus case numbers and hospitalizations.
COVID-19 cases have increased by 20-30% in the past two weeks in Dallas County, according to a letter from the Dallas County Public Health Committee to Judge Clay Jenkins. The county has seen a 36% increase in COVID-related hospitalizations in the same timeframe.
Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 account for the majority of cases in the area, the letter said.
Dallas County had been at a risk level of green since April.
