Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Texas Medical Center has been working diligently with the totality of its member institutions and both city and county officials to closely monitor the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to develop an appropriate action plan as it relates to keeping citizens informed and prepared with up-to-date resources, guidelines, and ways to be vigilant when it comes to personal health protocol.

Texas Medical Center has been sharing a set of metrics to better track how Houston is doing in its fight against COVID-19. These metrics will be updated in both English and Spanish on Monday mornings.
