Tarrant County continues to monitor the COVID-19 virus and is taking extra precautions by increasing the frequency and extent of disinfecting all of our facilities. Your health and safety has always been our top priority.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The best way to prevent infection is to practice the following:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
