Keeping Safe During Covid: Residents of the Medical Center Take Note!

By Ally Zhan

During these difficult Covid-focused times, it might feel a little overwhelming when it comes to feeling safe and germ-free. Even more so, residents situated in the Houston Medical Center area might be feeling a little squirmy when it comes to assessing their health and safety.

Marked by key hospital and medical care locations including the Woman’s Hospital of Texas, Michael E. DeBakey Medical Center, Texas Orthopedic Hospital, Kindred, St. Lukes, and more, the Houston Medical Center district is the ideal spot for interns, med students, specialists, and doctors to easily commute to crucial medical facilities for work and training. Residents living in apartments like The Broadmead or guests at the Courtyard by Marriott are literally a street away from any medical services they require should things take a bad turn. The area offers quick and easy access to several retail and food locations as well, aimed at giving residents all the handy resources they need for a comfortable, convenient daily life. The area also features close proximity to Hermann Park and the Miller Outdoor Theatre as well as the Houston Zoo, offering medical residents some much-needed recreational unwinding after a long day.

Despite all these features, the real question is how a district, especially one so heavily surrounded by hospitals and emergency centers, is faring under the weight of Covid-19. The first impression one might have is that the area is extremely high-risk when it comes to catching the virus, especially for potential residents who are or have older adults in their family. The truth is that the area is one of the safer spots in town and current and future residents can rest easy with the knowledge that medical districts, more than any other, place a huge emphasis on sanitation and health. 

Besides offering weekly updates to the public, the Medical Center District is always on high alert and has cracked down on offering students, staff, and residents the highest quality of health safety to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Just by looking at their updates page on their website, everyone gets free access to news and resources to help keep track of the virus’s trajectory. With this in mind, the Houston Medical Center District can still remain on top as an ideal place to live without having to fret about the riskiness of a post-Covid world.

Remember to use proper safety precautions this Fall--wear a mask and wash your hands regularly!
