Tarrant County to Require Face Masks in Public Places
All employees and visitors to Tarrant County businesses will be required to wear face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This requirement begins at 6 p.m. Friday and will run through 6 a.m. Aug. 3. County Judge Glen Whitley said the executive order requiring masks in public places is necessary because Tarrant County has seen a 52% increase in new COVID-19 cases, a 67% increase in hospitalizations and a 14% increase in deaths over the past 2 weeks.
“We believe that masks are our best alternative at this time,” he said, emphasizing that he does not want to return to the restrictions instituted in March.
