DALLAS, Texas (KXAN) — The City of Dallas has implemented restrictions to try to halt the spread of coronavirus, including closing businesses where people could come in close contact.
Bars, lounges, taverns, private clubs, gyms, health studios, theaters and commercial amusement facilities will be closed. The city also prohibited dining in at restaurants and gatherings of more than 50 people. The changes are an effort to practice social distancing, keeping people apart and providing less of an opportunity for the virus to spread.
The regulations go into effect just before midnight Monday and will continue until they are rescinded or expire.
Anyone found to violate the regulations could be fined between $50 and $2,000.
