DALLAS – Dallas County lowered its COVID-19 risk assessment to the lowest level it has been since the start of the pandemic.
“I’m wearing a green tie today because we’re able to shift our risk level for the first time to the green level, the new normal for people who have been vaccinated and boosted,” Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said.

Green is the lowest level in the county’s color-coded system, which was introduced early in the pandemic.
The color system provides guidelines that people can follow.
Most of the guidelines for green are similar to what people have been doing for a while now, like shopping, going to concerts, parties and traveling.
Although it still recommends that unvaccinated people keep their distance, stay away from the crowds and wear masks.
