COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Here are some examples of what Texas is doing to slow the potential spread of the virus into Texas and also to prepare for the possibility of community spread down the road.

·     Educating and informing state agencies, local leaders, schools, higher ed., and the public.
·     Daily calls with public health and emergency management and providers
·     Regular calls with local officials statewide
·     Maintaining the DSHS coronavirus page
·     Providing direct briefings for hospitals, providers, and others
·     Performing surveillance to identify any COVID that may emerge in Texas.
·     Screening through front lines – doctors, nurses, hospitals
·     Screening and monitoring of incoming travelers identified through the CDC airport screenings
·     Identifying cases through lab testing (CDC)
·     Providing public health expertise and guidance on individual cases and situations for local jurisdictions and public health departments.
·     Creating and sharing guidance for public health, health care, EMS, etc, including through the DSHS Coronavirus page.
·     Readying the state for lab testing at the state and local level once the federal government releases laboratory kits to the states.

The Texas Department of Emergency Management and DSHS are working together with state agencies to ready for likely scenarios that could unfold in the coming months.  This effort is especially timely as the U.S. gains more firsthand experience with the virus.

There are things everyone can do to protect themselves, and they are largely the same precautions we urge people to take to prevent spread of the flu:

·     Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
·     Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
·     Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
·     Stay home when you are sick.
·     Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
