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 change from daily to weekly data. We will publish all data from the week prior on Monday mornings.

Back to top

TMC continues to believe that data on positivity rate, vaccination rate, hospitalizations, etc. are important to supporting our community in managing its response to COVID-19.  However, at this time, we are seeing limited changes over the course of a week and believe that week over week data reporting provides the necessary information to the community.  We stand ready to restart daily reporting should the situation require it.

We want to thank our members for their commitment to transparency and public health; we recognize that collecting and reporting the data on a daily basis since the beginning of the pandemic has been a serious investment in our community.
