March 16, 2020: COVID-19 Update from the City of Sugar Land

The Imperial Park Recreation Center and the Sugar Land Heritage Museum & Visitor Center are closed through March 27. The closure will be reevaluated after March 27 and is intended to protect the public and help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the greater Houston region. In addition, all community meetings sponsored by the city will be postponed. These include Sugar Land 101, the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council and task force meetings. The city’s block party trailer will also be unavailable during this time, and park rentals for events of more than 50 people will also cease. Contact the IPRC at (281) 275-2885 for rescheduling or refunds. The actions follow a new recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control to limit public gatherings of more than 50 people.

Other closures were announced Friday as part of the city of Sugar Land declaring a disaster declaration that followed guidelines issued by Fort Bend County and actions taken by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. For more on city closures, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/coronavirus.

The Fort Bend County Health and Human Services Department is managing the local response. The city continues to work closely with the health department and Sugar Land’s local health authority and meet on a daily basis to ensure city leaders have all the facts and make decisions based on advice from health experts. At this time, the health department says the threat in Sugar Land and Fort Bend County remains low, so the city remains open for normal business; however, non-essential meetings and activities are being curtailed.
