FORT BEND COUNTY, TEXAS– COVID-19 test results have come back identifying a presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in a Fort Bend County Resident. The individual recently travelled abroad. He is currently hospitalized and in stable condition. This presumptive case is actionable and we are treating it as a positive. Fort Bend County Health & Human Services has started an epidemiological investigation and is leading the effort to quickly identity close contacts with the individual. Close contacts may include family members, co-workers, emergency responders, and other contacts. This is a rapidly evolving situation and we know it is concerning, and unsettling for our residents.  While this is a serious public health threat, we encourage residents to rely on verifiable sources of information and remain calm.

The Fort Bend County Health & Human Services Department, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and other public health officials continue to monitor and provide updates when they become available.

“We are working around the clock with all local, regional, and statewide health authorities to monitor the situation and update the public. All residents are encouraged to take every day preventative steps to avoid spreading respiratory illnesses by covering coughs, washing hands frequently, and staying home if you are sick,” stated Fort Bend County Judge KP George.
