The Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping our members and Fort Worth business community navigate through these uncertain times. Now that the coronavirus (COVID-19) has made its way to Tarrant County, local businesses are inquiring about information to be prepared to help their company, their employees and their families.
Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley has signed a declaration of local disaster due to a public health emergency. The order was signed to help contain and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Tarrant County.
On March 13, the City of Fort Worth declared a State of Emergency due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The declaration is effective at 12:01 a.m. March 14, 2020, and will be in place through March 21, 2020. It is contemplated that the City Council will vote in the coming week to extend the declaration past March 21.
