The new COVID-19 delta variant has continued to spread throughout the United States. Thankfully for Houston apartment residents, there have been quite a few recommendations and emergency measures taken to reduce the spread of the virus.

But, what does this mean to those that live in a Houston, TX apartment?

First, before you continue, breathe and relax. Most people are going to be okay. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have told us to “Stay calm.”

First off, apartments don’t have a lot of space so heading outside to shop is common. However, it’s not a bad idea on stocking up on things that you’ll need over the next few weeks. We recommend ordering what you can through local online stores for delivery and if that’s not available, through Amazon.

Second, if you’re elderly or are around elderly people then it could be best to restrict contact right now as best possible to prevent spreading or contracting the virus.

Third, let’s follow the CDC’s plan on what to do if someone in your apartment building does contract the COVID-19 coronavirus. Here’s some notes to take from the CDC:

  • Listen to CDC updates and those from local authorities
  • Wash your hands and cover coughs and sneezes
  • In case you get sick, make a self-assessment based on your current and normal health, age, and other demographics along with the CDC’s recommendations on whether you need to be tested, stay home, or go to the hospital

In summary, continue best practices of washing your hands regularly, avoid touching your face, stay away from poorly ventilated buildings and crowded public places.
