Tarrant County Health Department Coronavirus Information Hotline
A Message from Tarrant County Judge B. Glen Whitley
A Message from the City of Saginaw (04/01/2020)
As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread there will likely not be any municipality that will not have a confirmed case(s) within their community.
Citizens can be confident that Saginaw Emergency Officials continue to be in constant communication and work closely with Tarrant County Public Health Officials to ensure that county, state and federal guidelines and protocols are being followed regarding COVID-19 cases in our community.
Citizens are strongly encouraged to do their part by:
- Limiting contact with others as much as possible through social distancing.
- Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
- Staying home when you are sick. If you have trouble breathing, or a persistent fever, call your primary care provider.
- Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve.
- Frequently cleaning and disinfecting touched objects and surfaces.
Together, we must continue to do our part to protect our community and slow the spread. Stay home, be safe and we’ll all get through this together. #SaginawTogether
