As you are aware the Monkey Pox virus has recently been spreading throughout Dallas County. Balch Springs does have one confirmed case in which contact tracing was completed by Dallas County Health and Human Services. Similar to the COVID-19 virus, notifications from DCHHS is sent to myself and the Dispatch Supervisor. This allows us to keep track of positive cases and allow dispatch to notify our first responders who are responding to addresses flagged for positive cases.
