After careful consideration, Dallas College is saddened to announce the cancellation of “Bits and Bites ... To Go!” for 2020. As you may know, on Oct. 14, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins elevated the county’s COVID-19 risk level from orange for “Extreme Caution” to red for “Stay Home Stay Safe.” Dallas College is taking every precaution to prevent the community spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of all who were participating in the event this year.
