Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced a new set of restrictions meant to slow the spread of coronavirus. The amended order, effective at midnight, also extends limitations on social and community gatherings that went into effect on March 18.

Massage parlors, barbershops, hair and nail salons, tattoo and piercing shops, and spas are now among the types of businesses that must close, Jenkins said during a press conference.

Additionally, all medical, dental, and surgical facilities must postpone or cancel elective procedures, according to the amended order. The county is also implementing new limitations on the sale of toilet paper, Jenkins said.

Effective at midnight, shoppers may purchase no more than 12 rolls per visit; however, larger packs may be purchased in the off-chance they are available, Jenkins said. These new restrictions are needed because “some of us have not moved from selfishness to sacrifice,” Jenkins said.

“There is not a supply chain problem with the toilet paper,” he said during the conference. “Shoppers are the problem.”The county is also ordering the suspension of outdoor activities that require people to be in close proximity to each other, Jenkins said.

He referenced pickup basketball games as an example. Officers have been instructed to monitor outdoor areas and ticket those who are not observing social distancing, he said.
