City staff remain in close communication with other local, stated, and federal partners as we monitor the CVOID-19 cases in our area. 

 

Our Fire/EMS services continue to practice the policies put in place several weeks ago as it relates to identifying any potential COVID-19 patients. This includes screening patients over the phone to ensure our EMS providers know if there is a patient exhibiting the symptoms of COVID-19 before they arrive. Our EMS providers are donning all personal protective equipment (PPE) before making contact with any suspected patient. 

 

JVPD continues to conduct proactive patrols of neighborhoods, businesses, and all areas of our city. They are responding to all emergency calls utilizing the proper PPE where required. They are also using phone calls where appropriate to further practice social distancing while still providing a high level of response.

These loans, made through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), will primarily be used for payroll so that employees can continue to receive paychecks and small businesses can retain their employees and will be partially or wholly forgiven.  We’ve posted more information on our website here: https://www.jerseyvillagetx.com/page/econdev.covid19

Please also take a moment to tell us how we are doing with our communication as it relates to COVID-19.

Update for April 10, 2020

Today the County decided to release the current count of COVID-19 cases in each community. As of today there are 4 cases of COVID-19 in Jersey Village. At this time, the County cannot provide specific information like name or address because of HIPAA concerns. The Stay Home, Work Safe Order as well as City Ordinance 2020-06 requires anyone with COVID-19 to remain within the confines of their home during the quarantine period following their exposure.

 

Please keep in mind that this does not mean residents of Jersey Village are more or less likely to develop cases. It is also likely that there are other cases that have not been diagnosed, as there is a severe limit in the ability of the County to test for COVID-19. As such it is imperative that people continue to adhere to the social distancing requirements and the Stay Home, Work Safe order that is currently in effect.

 

Harris County Public Health Department is targeting its resources toward contact tracing in areas where there is enhanced concern about the possibility of wider spread - essential workers, for example, or nursing homes.

 

We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available. 

 

 

Update for April 8, 2020

City leadership continues to monitors the COVID-19 situation on a continuous basis. Each day city leadership, such as the City Manager, Fire Chief, and Police Chief, are in communication with neighboring communities, county and state officials, to stay abreast of the current situation.  

 

The city is looking for feedback on our communication efforts during this time. Please answer 5 simple questions to know how we are doing and how we can improve!

 

Based upon clarification from Governor Abbott Jersey Meadow Golf Course will be closed until May 1. 

 

 

Update for April 6, 2020

Under guidance from Harris County Jersey Meadow Golf Course has reopened. Some of the precautions being taken include limited tee times, no rakes in bunkers, putting to raised cups, staff protections such as shields, gloves, and face masks, single riders on carts, and carts only being used once per day to allow for proper cleaning and sanitizing.

 

The water and wastewater for the City of Jersey Village continues to exceed and maintain quality distribution to our public and to our streams.

 

As the County Public Health Department is our Public Health Agency (and for all of the cities in the County besides Houston) they have decided to only release cases by quadrant of the county. There is no publicly available data for cases in Jersey Village. The County has their dashboard up with information, which can be found here.

 

The City recommends people follow the CDC recommendations on face mask usage when out doing essential activities. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

 

Here's how you can make a face covering with items you have around your home:

You can also use the guide located here to create your own face mask.
