HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner updated Houstonians on the city’s relief efforts, testing sites, the number of new positive cases and other coronavirus-related issues.

Among other issues, Turner asked Houstonians to support local restaurants by ordering pickup or delivery when possible, to help decrease unemployment. He was joined by the Houston and Texas Restaurant Association to announce a “Take us to your table” campaign on April 23. Since Houstonians can’t get a table at their favorite restaurant during the shut down, the campaign encourages residents to make takeout plans and share their meal photos on social media and use #TakeUsToYourTable in your caption.

Coronavirus cases in Houston

Turner announced 125 more positive cases and three more deaths, bringing to city’s death toll to 29. Turner said one patient was a Hispanic woman in her 80s with underlying heal conditions, the second patient was a black male in his 80s with underlying health conditions and the third patient was a white male in his 60s with underlying health conditions.

Houston positive cases now stand at 2,456.

Turner urged Houstonians to remain in guidelines of the city’s and CDC orders to prevent future cases and deaths. He did not want to discuss plans of reopening the city because the city’s current goal is to protect its residents and curb the spread by keeping people home and off the roads.

Testing

Turner also thanked Hyundai for choosing to grant $100,000 to Houston and Houston Health Foundation and also donate 10,000 testing kits.
