MCTX officials are closely monitoring COVID-19 and are working with local, state and federal agencies to manage the pandemic in this region. Based on recent updates, including the “Declaration of Local Disaster for Public Health Emergency” in Fort Bend and Harris Counties, the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has been activated to Level III.
As this is a serious public health threat, residents are encouraged to stop the spread by practicing healthy hygiene habits and taking the following precautions:
“We are committed to the health and safety of our residents. In addition, we are closely monitoring all safety guidelines as they relate to the operations of City services and programs,” Mayor Yolanda Ford said. “With COVID-19 spreading at this rapid pace, it’s important for everybody to take every safety precaution, to monitor updates on the citizens’ communications tools, and to contact your physician if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.”
In addition, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Fort Bend County Judge KP George issued updated community guidelines with several recommendations including cancelling or postponing events with more than 250 people; encouraging people at higher risk of severe illnesses to stay home and away from large crowds; requesting employers to maximize telecommuting options and to consider staggering start and end times to reduce large numbers of people coming together at the same time.
