Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is asking people to be patient and keep following social distancing guidelines because they are working.

“Today’s numbers may be artificially low due to some labs being closed yesterday. #SaferAtHome is working because the vast majority of the people of North Texas are making good personal responsibility decisions. Keep it up and together we will #FlattenTheCurve,” said Jenkins.
