Howdy and Welcome to Harris County!

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Harris County COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose significant challenges and is likely to remain a concern for the next several months. Harris County’s response to this hazard is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. As a Harris County department, our main concern is for the safety and well-being of our staff.

In an effort to adhere to the guidelines set by our Federal, State, and County officials and out of an abundance of caution, we are working as a skeletal crew and have encouraged all staff to work remotely from the safety of their homes if they choose to do so.

Please continue to check our website for up-to-date information on event cancellations and rescheduling of canceled events.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Harris County is prepared and ready to respond to this crisis. These actions are necessary to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, reduce the burden on our healthcare system, and provide researchers more time to learn about this virus and create strategies to combat and defeat it.
