FORT BEND COUNTY JUDGE KP GEORGE LAUNCHES COVID-19 SURVEY

The COVID-19 survey will help in driving the decision making process in Fort Bend County

FORT BEND COUNTY, TEXAS- Fort Bend County Judge KP George, former Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, & Director of the Kinder Institute Bill Fulton announced the COVID-19 Survey for Fort Bend County residents. The full video of the announcement can be found here.

The COVID-19 Registry is a community registry designed to track the health and economic impacts of COVID-19, with a focus on the Houston region, and provide government officials with real-time information on the virus’s spread across time and across neighborhoods, who is being affected and how.

“I encourage all Fort Bend residents to take a few minutes out of their schedules to fill out the COVID-19 survey. As I have always said, data will drive our decision making and your feedback is valuable in this process,” said County Judge KP George. “I’m proud to launch this effort in Fort Bend County with the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University.”

The impact of the coronavirus will last long after the media attention has faded away.  It is important, therefore, for residents to give as much information as possible to local officials so they can continue to provide services and prepare for future pandemics. The COVID-19 registry is your opportunity to contribute to a better recovery and a safer future,” said former Harris County Judge Ed Emmett.

The COVID-19 Registry can be found at https://kinder.rice.edu/covid-19-registry

Key findings will be available online as they come in. As of 4/20/2020, ~2,100 Texas residents have joined the registry and taken the survey, the vast majority of whom live in the Houston region. Respondents are not representative of the population at large. More respondents are filling out the registry survey every day and follow-up surveys will be conducted every two weeks. This Public Summary Report will be updated periodically.
