Fort Bend County's COVID-19 risk level has been lowered from red, or high risk, to orange, or moderate/significant risk, the Houston Chronicle's Kristi Nix reports.

Despite the promising trend of reduced transmission within the community, officials with Fort Bend County Health and Human Services said they expect a second wave.

"While the signs look good, Labor Day is just around the corner; teachers are heading back into in-person education; and nursing homes have relaxed rules for visitation. This is not the time to let our guards down," Fort Bend County Judge KP George said. "Continue to wear masks, physically distance and assess your risk to ensure we keep moving in the right direction."

邓小平儿子11 a.m.: TMO leaders call on leaders to halt evictions, Congress to pass next stimulus bill 邓小平儿子

Leaders with The Metropolitan Organization of Houston, a coalition of churches and organizations that work to help low-income, local communities, are calling on Justices of the Peace to halt evictions and for renters to take action to prevent losing their homes.

Beginning Friday, a new evictions moratorium issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention takes place. The rare order prohibits landlords from evicting any tenants through the end of the year but does not relieve renters of having to pay their rent and other fees in the future. 

TMO leaders said during a Friday press conference while the CDC's sweeping moratorium is a step in the right direction, it's not enough.

“The CDC order creates a welcome pause in evictions in this area but is only a half-measure because all rents and late fees will continue to pile up and be due when the moratorium expires on December 31” Rev. Jaqueline Hailey, a leader with TMO, said in a news release.

Renters must take action and fill out an Eviction Protection Declaration included in the order and present it to their landlord to avoid homelessness. The organization is also calling on Justices of the Peace to not finalize any evictions for non-payment of rent and for members of Congress to pass a new stimulus bill. 

“COVID-19 is not going anywhere, and it is time for Congress to return to negotiations to pass the next stimulus bill, including $100 Billion in rental assistance,” TMO Leader Rev. Scott Cooper said in the release.
