coronavirus

Galveston County Health District is working with local, state and federal partners to closely monitor Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), formerly known as 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

There are currently NO confirmed cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID19) in Galveston County and the threat remains low in our community.

How can I avoid infection with COVID-19?

The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus, which are similar to the precautions you take to avoid the flu. CDC always recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Use your elbow to cover coughs and sneezes. 
  • Keep plenty of tissues around.
  • Frequently clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.

IMPORTANT: Avoid misinformation and follow official sites!
