Tarrant County has issued a Declaration of Local Disaster Due to Public Health Emergency and provided recommendations to limit exposure and prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
The health and safety of our residents is a top priority. Euless staff participates in daily conference calls conducted by the Texas Department of State Health Services. In addition, we have coordinated our response plans with Tarrant County Public Health and have contacts we can speak to 24-hours a day should the need arise. The 9-1-1 Dispatch center has implemented a procedure using the CDC guidance to ask travel questions on calls needing assistance consistent with a respiratory illness. This ensures our first responders can put on the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) before patient contact.
We encourage all citizens to be diligent with your own hygiene. Visit the CDC website for more information on how COVID-19 is spread. The CDC recommends everyday practices that help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases.
