COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 cases are increasing dramatically. As of August 2, 2021, Galveston County's 7-day rolling average of new cases is 143 per day. That's up 101% from where we were just 14 days prior.

We've got to work together to slow the spread of COVID-19 and the Delta variant, #GalvestonCounty.

Here's what we know:
๐Ÿ‘‰ Delta is serious and much more contagious than other variants we've seen.
๐Ÿ‘‰ #COVID19 vaccine offers the best protection against severe illness, hospitalization and death, including against Delta.
โœ” Get vaccinated - gchd.org/covidvaccine
โœ” Wear a face mask and social distance, even if you are fully vaccinated
โœ” Get tested and stay home if you feel sick or have been around someone who has COVID-19

Strategies for Optimizing the Supply of Facemasks

line drawing of man with a face mask from CDC

Implement limited re-use of facemasks.

  • The facemask should be removed and discarded if soiled, damaged, or hard to breathe through.
  • Not all facemasks can be re-used.
  • Facemasks that fasten to the provider via ties may not be able to be undone without tearing and should be considered only for extended use, rather than re-use.
  • Facemasks with elastic ear hooks may be more suitable for re-use.
  • Facemasks should be carefully folded so that the outer surface is held inward and against itself to reduce contact with the outer surface during storage. The folded mask can be stored between uses in a clean sealable paper bag or breathable container.

CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
