Comments

What happened to the county COVID DASHBOARD?
Why can't I access the daily Covid-19 statistics anymore.? It says I must sign in to ArcGIS, whatever that is. Why are you withholding this important information? Please message me.
Who to contact about a home near you that has mold and mildew throughout in the Champions area?
What is up with the Harris County Public Health website? Can't connect to check on a Covid test result.
Why are standalone surgery centers still being allowed to do elective surgery procedures?
Why are gyms open? Every time I drive by the one in my neighborhood and see all the cars I think why close the bars and leave these places open?
I'm still looking for an explanation as to why the media keeps telling us that Houston/Harris County new cases numbers are increasing when your site is showing an increasing decline. Can someone please answer this?
Can someone please tell me why the number of daily cases on this site don't match what is reported by Lina and the news every day?
Who can we call to discuss business in Harris County that refuse to enforce the mask order?
Why does the dashboard show a DECREASE in cases? We know that's not true. It's not just today because cases aren't tallied..... it's the past couple days. Why is a main tool for the public so horribly incorrect? And when will % + rates begin to be shared? Easy chart to add that is imperatively helpful.
