  1. About Case Reporting

    The city of Sugar Land does not have its own municipal health department. Fort Bend County Health and Human Services serves as the local health department for the city. The State requires laboratories, hospitals, and health professionals to report positive test results of COVID-19 to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) or the local health department. If a positive test result is reported directly to DSHS, that information is then shared with with the local health department.

    Fort Bend County’s COVID-19 Response Hub is the authoritative resource for official case information.
