If you or those you care for are at higher risk, you should:

  • Keep away from others who are sick
  • Limit close contact with others
  • Wash your hands often

The Clear Lake Shores Police Department and the City of Clear Lake Shores are working together to assist our elderly residents or residents with compromised health and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What can I do if I feel sick?

Call your healthcare provider if you are experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath and are concerned you have come in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient or have a history of travel from affected geographic areas within 14 days of symptom onset. 

The Galveston County Health District opened an information call center to answer questions about COVID-19. You can reach the call center at 409-938-7221, option 1, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

How can I avoid infection with COVID-19?

The Galveston County Health District has provided important information to avoid infection.

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 your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash. If tissues are not available, cough and sneeze in your elbow. Do not cough and sneeze in your hands.
  • Frequently clean and disinfect objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Get a flu shot. The flu vaccine does not offer protection against COVID-19, but it is also flu season.

IMPORTANT: Stop the spread of misinformation and follow official sites!
