West Nile Virus (WNV) 🦟mosquito activity🦟 is at record-high levels in Tarrant County. Sampling and testing are done year-round. To date, there have been more than 400 positive WNV tests in the County – five of which were from pools within the City of Kennedale.

Personal protection and elimination of breeding habitats are your two best tools. Regardless of surveillance results, you are encouraged to continue to follow the 4D’s of personal protection throughout the mosquito season:

✅ DUSK to DAWN: stay indoors when mosquitos are active
✅ DRAIN: prevent and eliminate standing water in places like flower pots, toys, clogged rain gutters, and wading pools
✅ DRESS: opt for light-colored long sleeves and pants
✅ DEET: apply repellant when outdoors

Kennedale Police Department

Some of you may have seen City of Fort Worth Police units in Kennedale today or received a text from Kennedale ISD about a “perceived danger” near Kennedale High School. The City of Fort Worth was in pursuit of someone who was, for a brief time, believed to be in Kennedale. Kennedale officers were not involved in this operation, but the information we have at this time no longer indicates that the suspect is located in Kennedale.

**There is NO perceived threat to our community at this time.**

That said, we completely understand and support KISD for erring on the side of caution to protect their faculty and staff. We will keep you updated if any further information becomes available.

📢UPDATE📢 (as of 5:25 p.m. on Thursday, August 13): Thank you all for your efforts to minimize water usage today. The problem has been resolved and you can now resume normal water usage including irrigation.

---
The City of Kennedale recognizes that residents depend on reliable water service. Starting early Thursday morning, an electrical outage has affected a critical pump station involved in the production of tap water for the Kennedale distribution system.

Arlington Water Utilities, which operates Kennedale’s water and sewer operations, is currently working to minimize water service interruptions. However, Kennedale officials are asking residents to take the following precautions immediately:

✅ Limit water use to only critical health and safety needs.
✅ Discontinue all outdoor watering and automatic sprinkler system use until further notice to limit water demand in the city.

Oncor is working to restore electrical power to the pump station site. As an emergency response measure, Arlington water is being supplied to Kennedale through recently constructed distribution system connections. As that water is quickly being added, some harmless sediment could cause discoloration to the water coming into Kennedale. Additional water quality sampling is taking place and Kennedale’s water is safe to drink. Check here for updates.

07/16/2020

To achieve the goal of providing high-quality Arlington water to Kennedale residents, Arlington Water Utilities field crews recently began installing infrastructure that will be needed to connect the Arlington water system with Kennedale’s current water distribution system.

The design of the project is in its final stages. A timeline for the interconnection’s completion will be available soon. As the work continues, Arlington Water will notify residents of any expected water outages in their neighborhood at least 48 hours in advance.

If you see a crew working in your area and your water is unexpectedly out of service, please call 817-459-5900 to inform Arlington Water and receive information about when restoration of service can be expected. Information about emergency and planned water outages can also be found online at www.arlingtontx.gov/wateroutages.

Office of the Governor Greg Abbott

Governor Greg Abbott today issued an Executive Order requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces in counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases, with few exceptions.

The Governor also issued a proclamation making it mandatory that, with certain exceptions, people cannot be in groups larger than ten and must maintain six feet of social distancing from others.

Executive Order:https://open.texas.gov/uploads/files/organization/opentexas/EO-GA-29-use-of-face-coverings-during-COVID-19-IMAGE-07-02-2020.pdf

Proclamation:https://open.texas.gov/uploads/files/organization/opentexas/DISASTER-proclamation-amending-GA-28-mass-gatherings-IMAGE-07-02-2020.pdf

Wearing a face covering in public is proven to be one of the most effective ways to slow the spread of #COVID19 while continuing to keep Texas businesses open.

Texans should wear a face covering for the health of their families, friends, and for all fellow Texans.

06/26/2020

Citing a 52% increase in the cumulative number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Tarrant County during the past two weeks, Judge Glen Whitley announced yesterday an order REQUIRING cloth face coverings in most public situations. The order is effective beginning 6:00 p.m. today, Friday, June 26, through Monday, August 3 (unless modified by the Judge).

Indoors, the mandate applies to both employees and to visitors. Outdoors, it applies to gatherings of more than 100 people. Judge Whitley encourages wearing a mask anytime you leave your place of residence, however. As a reminder, the CDC does NOT recommend face coverings for children under 2 years old.

Any commercial entity in the county that provides goods or services directly to the public must develop and display “in a conspicuous location” a Health and Safety Policy that requires – at a minimum – that all employees and visitors wear face coverings. Businesses may choose to add other measures such as temperature checks or health screenings. The third page of the County Order includes an example of such a policy.

‣ View the Executive Order at www.tarrantcounty.com/content/dam/main/global/Covid-19/TarrantCountyJudgeExecutiveOrder6-25-20.pdf
‣ View the press conference during which Judge Whitley made the announcement of the order at www.facebook.com/TarrantCountyJudge/posts/564747780883054
‣ Monitoring information (updated daily) can be found at coronavirus.tarrantcounty.com

Generally, you will not be required to wear a mask while eating or drinking, when receiving a service where the wearing of a face covering would impair the performance of the service (i.e. receiving a facial), or if wearing a mask would pose a “significant mental or physical health risk” to the individual .

This Order is in response to rates of infection increasing exponentially, despite current efforts. During the last two weeks, Tarrant County has also seen a 67% increase in hospitalizations and a 14% increase in deaths. As of Wednesday, June 24, Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) had recorded 9,846 positive cases of COVID-19. Of those, an estimated 4,682 have recovered and 215 have died. Kennedale residents account for 23 of those positive cases, 10 of the recoveries, and 1 of the deaths.

During the most recent meeting of the Tarrant County Commissioners Court, Public Health Director Vinny Taneja shared the attached image regarding Coronavirus risk level by type of activity. If a planned activity is nonessential or for leisure, consider your health and the health of those you are in regular contact with. If you must go out, you are urged to wear a mask, maintain 6 (six) feet of social distance, not touch your face, and wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.

An update from Chief Williams

On Monday, April 27th, 2020, all Kennedale Police employees interacting with the public will be under a few new protocols. This is another evolution in our desire to continue serving our citizens to the best of our abilities while protecting our employees and their families.

Here are a few adjustments that we have kept in place, and some that are new:
• The major change for our employees is that they will be wearing a mask, goggles, and gloves on public contacts, including inside the police building.
• We have sectioned off an area in front of the police lobby service window to allow for the 6 foot social distancing. Civilian employees will also be wearing the protective gear at the window.
• We are continuing with screening calls through dispatch in order to encourage telephone reporting of non-violent crimes that do not require an officer on scene. We are encouraging the public to make these telephone reports as much as possible to prevent any exposure to COVID-19.
• If an officer is required to respond to a residence or business, they will ask to take the report outside of the structure. This will prevent any unnecessary exposure of the employee and the reporting person.
• Our officers are being instructed to follow CDC guidelines such as frequent hand washing and social distancing as well as having their temperatures taken at the beginning of each shift.
• Our vehicles are being cleaned multiple times each day with disinfecting wipes. We are also using a disinfecting mister on the vehicle at least once per week to get the hard to reach places in the passenger compartments.
• We have protocols in place to assist employees in dealing with the issue of what to do if an employee reports for work, or develops during shift, a fever or other symptoms.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a challenge to first responders as well as the medical community and the public that we serve. In order to do this, we appreciate your understanding in this newest set of protocols as we go about our daily duties.
