  • People in places where ongoing community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated risk of exposure, with increase in risk dependent on the location. You can monitor Texas cases here: https://www.dshs.state.tx.us/coronavirus/
  • Healthcare workers caring for patients with COVID-19 are at elevated risk of exposure. 
  • Close contacts of persons with COVID-19 are at elevated risk of exposure.
  • Travelers returning from affected international locations where community spread is occurring are at elevated risk of exposure, with increase in risk dependent on the location.
