Our first quarterly County Executive Committee (CEC) meeting of the year will be Thursday, March 12th, at 7 PM at the IBEW Local 716, 1475 N Loop W, Houston, TX 77008.

A quorum is needed to pass any issues presented to the committee, so all healthy Precinct Chairs are encouraged to attend. We know that with the recent news of COVID-19, some people are unsure about whether or not we are having the first quarterly CEC. We know that this is an uncertain time, and we want you to know that your safety is our number one priority.

We are working diligently to stay on top of CDC updates, and we will continue to monitor and provide updates as needed.

We will provide additional prevention supplies at our meeting for attendees, including soap, hand sanitizers, and tissues.

People planning to attend should follow this guidance:

  • Wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care. Do not come to the CEC if you are sick.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. If you cough into a tissue or blow your nose, wash your hands after you throw away the tissue. If you cough or sneeze into your elbow, please change your clothes/wash them as soon as possible.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath, seek medical advice promptly by calling ahead to a doctor or going to a medical provider to get guidance.
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth, with unwashed hands.
  • Clean frequently-touched surfaces and objects. We will clean surfaces at the CEC before and during the meeting.
  • Try to minimize your contact with frequently touched objects—doorknobs, light switches, handrails. 
  • Stop shaking hands and reduce unnecessary person to person contact. See what kind of fun ways you can come up with to greet each other!
  • Practice social distancing, ideally staying 6 feet away. If that’s not possible, even a little distancing is helpful, as the virus spreads through droplets that can get in the air from a cough or sneeze or from direct contact. 
  • Wipe down your phone and keys with a sanitizing wipe. Wipe down your car, steering wheel, and door handles.
