In Montgomery County, and in the rest of the nation, testing supplies are limited. Because the supply of testing materials is not keeping up with demand, healthcare providers as a whole cannot test everyone, even those who are symptomatic. Therefore, it is very likely that people in the community have COVID-19 who have not been tested.
Montgomery County Public Health District, in conjunction with the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management, continues to monitor a presumptive positive case of a Northwest Montgomery County resident; we are still awaiting CDC confirmation of the positive result. He is in fair but stable condition in a hospital in Montgomery County. It has been revealed that the man, who is in his 40s, attended the BBQ Cookoff affiliated with the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo on Friday, February 28, 2020.
Montgomery County Hospital District is offering Pediatric CPR and First-Aid classes for free in light of a new, stricter Texas law on licensed childcare facilities including homes.

The grounds are saturated, rivers and creeks continue to swell. Areas that flooded in 1994 will be inundated with water again. If you are in a low lying area prone to flooding, you need to get to higher ground now. We have several Red Cross Shelters open and receiving evacuees. If you receive a message on your mobile device to evacuate, do so immediately...We are out of high water barricades. Do not take it for granted that if there isn’t a barricade that the road is safe to drive over. Motorists should use extreme caution when driving as some flooded or damaged roads may not be barricaded until we can secure more barricades. Flowing water on roadways can easily sweep a vehicle off the road. If you can stay at home, please do, do not drive unless you absolutely must. Please do not go out sightseeing. Turn around Don’t Drown.

“I’m surprised to see the current board is moving so fast to have this incorporation vote, and I haven’t had anyone identify what problem we’re solving or what risk factor we’re identifying,” former Township Chair Bruce Tough said. “There’s a push for some reason and no benefit to be gained.”
Houston annexation was always the driving force behind efforts by many local residents to incorporate The Woodlands as a city in order to prevent annexation either by Houston or Conroe. With the primary reason for incorporation legally removed, The Golden Hammer asked some community leaders whether the passage of House Bill 347 now negates the need for incorporation or not.
