Fort Worth Closing All Basketball, Volleyball Courts After ‘This Weekend’s Lack Of Social Distancing’

Tarrant County is currently under a “stay at home” order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 as cases and deaths continue to increase in North Texas.

Under the order, residents are being told to stay inside their homes unless they need to leave for “essential” activities such as grocery shopping, medical Fort worth News reasons or for jobs that are still operating. Residents are allowed to go outdoors for fresh air, but they must follow guidelines such as staying at least six feet apart from each other and not gathering in large groups.

Fort Worth wants people to call their COVID-19 hotline, or use a special email to report possible violations of stay home orders.
Since launching a COVID-19 hotline and email address last week, Fort Worth has received more than 3,000 calls related to the virus, and nearly 750 emails.


Inquiries spiked March 25, the day after the city’s stay home order went into effect.

The calls range from questions about what businesses are allowed to be open, to reporting perceived violations of the city’s order.

Fire department Mike Drivdahl explained Monday Press Release Distribution Services In Fort Worth that calls to non-emergency numbers or even 911, would be routed to the hotline, and then referred to fire or code compliance on a case by case basis.

He said city departments were not responding to every report of a possible violation, comparing it to how the department handles fireworks calls on July 4.
