Our staff, including our police and fire-rescue teams, are taking appropriate precautionary measures including conducting more frequent disinfection processes at our highly trafficked facilities.

While the immediate risk of COVID-19 is believed to be low at this time, we encourage you to follow advice and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) websites. They provide information for travelers, businesses and healthcare providers about how the virus spreads, its symptoms and how to protect yourself.

What can you do?

  • Practice illness prevention. This means staying home when you feel sick, washing your hands often and effectively, covering a cough or sneeze with your elbow, and seeking healthcare when it is medically necessary.
  • Get immunized against the flu. This will relieve what could be a highly impacted healthcare system
  • Confirm news you hear about COVID-19 by checking official websites, such as the CDC and Texas DSHS.
