COVID-19 has slightly loosened its grip on Dallas County, according to the Alabama Department of Health’s online dashboard. 

Dallas County is now listed as a High Risk county, the second highest category, which is an improvement from last week’s Very High Risk rating.  

Dallas County also dropped from the top county in the state for number of cases per 100,000 to the second highest, at 589 cases. Perry County, which once had the fewest cases in the state, surpassed Dallas for first place with 919 cases per 100,000 people.
