On Friday, March 13, Seabrook Mayor, Thom Kolupski, signed a local disaster declaration for Seabrook. The City of Seabrook’s main priority is the health and wellbeing of our residents and the city continues to coordinate with public health and emergency management officials throughout the state and region to ensure our community is prepared with a proactive approach to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).


The local disaster declaration signed by Mayor Kolupski will allow the city to take further measures which may reduce the risk of COVID-19 from spreading in our community. These measures may include the postponement or cancellation of large events or community gatherings and the closing of city facilities as necessary. In addition, the declaration will also help with federal funding for emergency services and medical supplies should the need arise. 


The primary goal of all of our efforts is to slow the spread of infection thus allowing our health system to sustain and meet the needs of our community without overwhelming them. 


Please remain calm and prepared and continue to follow public health guidance for COVID-19. We encourage residents to rely on trusted information and resources. 

Harris County Public Health has established a Call Center to answer questions about COVID-19 at (713) 634-1110 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Online resources may be found at www.hcphtx.org/COVID-19


At this time there have been no confirmed cases in Seabrook. Should the Office of Emergency Management receive notification of a confirmed case in Seabrook, residents will be notified via our normal communications methods. The City of Seabrook will continue to coordinate with local officials to provide residents with up to date information.
