Coronavirus Information and Resources
The CDC has confirmed one case of 2019-nCoV in a person who has been under quarantine at JBSA-Lackland in San Antonio since their return from China on a State Department-chartered flight. The individual is currently isolated and receiving medical care at a local hospital. This case does not change the risk of infection for people in San Antonio or other parts of Texas, because the patient has been under quarantine. The risk for all Texans remains low.
The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in monitoring the developing outbreak.
