Montgomery County Public Health District, in conjunction with Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, encourages everyone to do your part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping businesses and restaurants open, especially ahead of this weekend’s 4th of July holiday. Limiting the number of people you come in contact with will reduce the chance of contracting COVID-19. Wearing a mask if necessary to be in public, frequent handwashing or using hand sanitizer, surface disinfection and social distancing are imperative. Starting today (June 29), per Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order, restaurants are only permitted to serve at 50% capacity.
Tonight, MCHD Chief of EMS James Campbell and MCHD Medical Director Dr. Robert Dickson will join Conroe ISD Superintendent Dr. Craig Null on a Facebook Live about COVID-19. Please join us on the Conroe ISD Facebook page at 6:00pm tonight.
