Houston, Harris County COVID-19 data

Houston and Harris County COVID-19 data is combined to give people a full visual overview of what’s happening in the entire county, including the city of Houston. The dashboard is available at HoustonEmergency.org/covid19.

Level 1: Stay Home

Level one signifies a severe and uncontrolled level of COVID-19, meaning outbreaks are present and worsening and  testing and contact tracing capacity is strained. At this level, people should minimize contacts with others wherever possible and avoid leaving home except for the most essential needs like going to the grocery store for food and medicine.  Learn More

The Houston Health Department (HHD) works in partnership with the community to promote and protect the health and social well-being of Houstonians and the environment in which they live. HHD is a full-service health department that not only performs all core functions of a Public Health Department but also many enhanced functions including initiatives to address health inequities. HHD services
benefit all Houston residents but the department also takes additional steps to support those most in need, such as low-income mothers and children, the elderly and minority populations. Most HHD functions serve the 2.3 million residents of the City of Houston but the scope and impact extends into Harris County’s population of 4.7 million people through the department’s Area Aging on Aging, Bureau of Youth and Adolescent Health, Project Saving Smiles, See to Succeed, immunization strategies, syndromic surveillance and HIV-STD surveillance. HHD’s laboratory also services a 17-county region.
