(Missouri City, TX) — On Friday, May 1, 2020, Congressman Al Green joined Fort Bend County officials – Judge KP George and Health and Human Services Director Dr. Jacqueline Minter – to announce a new coronavirus testing site in Missouri City, located in the Ninth Congressional District. Congressman Green released the following statement:

“I am proud to join my Fort Bend colleagues from the state, county, and local level in announcing the opening of a new coronavirus testing site in the City of Missouri City, located in the Ninth Congressional District,” said Congressman Al Green. “The first case of COVID-19 in the Greater Houston area was reported in Fort Bend County. What started as one case in Fort Bend County has grown exponentially and expanded to surrounding counties. Therefore, it is imperative that we continue our efforts to test COVID-19 in all of our communities and implement procedures for effective contact tracing as we work to defeat the coronavirus crisis.”

Green’s congressional district includes Missouri City – where the testing site is located – as well as other areas of Fort Bend County. He added, “I must thank Judge KP George and Director Jacqueline Minter for their unwavering leadership during this global health emergency. Additionally, I must applaud Mayor Yolanda Ford as she welcomes the testing site to Missouri City. It is my hope that this testing site will not only contribute to Fort Bend County’s coronavirus response but also help to flatten the curve for the Greater Houston area overall.”
