Fort Bend County COVID-19 Community Risk Level: UPGRADED TO RED

We may be tired of COVID-19, but it’s not tired of us. Each of us plays a vital role in continuing to stop the spread and keep each other healthy. Even as some businesses will be permitted reopen by the Governor, we urge residents to help us contain the spread by continuing to work and play virtually, use face coverings if you have to be out, and support contact tracing efforts.

Fort Bend County has moved into the red category which signifies High Community Risk for COVID19 Transmission, meaning outbreaks are present and worsening and that testing and contact tracing capacity is strained or exceeded. At this level, residents need to take action to minimize contacts with others wherever possible and avoid leaving home except for the most essential needs like going to the grocery store for food and medicine.
