The GDHCC's COVID-19 Response
The Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) public health crisis and its impact on the community. We are in contact with local, state, and national leaders and health authorities to ensure that we have the most current information related to this very crucial issue.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Texas Department of Health Services, Dallas County, and the City of Dallas have provided guidelines, recommendations, and restrictions to help prevent the transmission of the virus. More specifically, they strongly recommend social distancing protocols for businesses to minimize exposure, prohibit community gatherings or events that involve 50 or more people, and cancellation is strongly recommended for gatherings of 10 or more people. Additionally, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins issued a "Stay Home Stay Safe" Order that went into effect on March 23, 2020 at 11:59 pm requiring all individuals living within Dallas County to shelter at their place of residence. The Order also requires all businesses operating within Dallas County, except those classified as "Essential Businesses," are required to "cease all activities at facilities located within the County."
Because the health and safety of the GDHCC members, Board of Directors, and hard working staff is our top priority, we have decided to postpone all GDHCC events for the remainder of March, as well as for the months of April and May. Additionally, please note that the GDHCC offices will be closed to the public and GDHCC staff will be working remotely effective immediately. They can be reached by email and/or phone at (214) 521-6007.
As we continue to navigate through this unprecedented health crisis, the GDHCC will continue to monitor the situation and provide timely updates, collaborate with our partners for the betterment of the community, and remain active in our advocacy efforts.
