DALLAS, Texas (KDAF) — COVID-19 is rapidly spread across the U.S. and Texas has some of the biggest infection rates in the country.
That didn’t stop people from congregating to celebrate the Fourth of July, however. Video of a large party in Michigan has gone viral.
In Dallas, video from a pool party at The Statler hotel in downtown Dallas shows guests in a crowded pool area without masks or social distancing protocols.
Last week, Governor Greg Abbott has issued an Executive Order requiring all Texans wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth in public spaces. The order extends to all counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases.
The Governor also prohibited outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people, unless approved by a local mayor or county judge.
