Klyde Warren Park is postponing its kid-focused events scheduled for the weekend due to "record-high number of pediatric COVID-19 patients and lack of available ICU beds for children," the park said Friday.
Other programs will continue as the downtown Dallas park remains open.
Both Children’s Medical Center in Dallas and Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth said that they do have staffed intensive care unit beds available to treat patients on Friday.
The DFW Hospital Council previously reported Thursday there were no available staffed pediatric ICU beds in the 19-county Trauma Service Area E, which includes the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
