COVID-19 Resources

Due to school closures and restrictions on large crowds, we’re forced to pivot our programming for the foreseeable future. But human trafficking hasn’t stopped; men, women, and children continue to be exploited, despite social distancing.

We refuse to let this virus come between us and our mission.

In a time of relentless unknowns, we want to make sure trafficking victims still have an escape route to safety, teens are protected from online predators, and vulnerable populations aren’t tricked into exploitation.

That’s why our work to prevent exploitation, educate the community, and empower survivors remains in full effect right here – online.

Harris County issued a mandatory mask order starting  April 27th, mirroring mandates set already by San Antonio and Dallas, among other major cities in the state. This order is in effect for the next 30 days.

Under the order, residents 10 years old and older will be required to wear a covering which can be a mask, scarf, bandanna or handkerchief. The masks or coverings must cover the nose and mouth, and the only exceptions to the rule will be when exercising, eating, drinking, if you’re alone in a separate place, or at your home. Health officials say the masks are needed to stop the spread of germs as much as possible.

NO escuche rumores que pueda escuchar en las redes sociales. La oficina del Cirujano General de EE. UU. les recordó a todos: “POR FAVOR, hablen siempre con su proveedor de servicios médicos antes de administrarse cualquier tratamiento / medicamento a usted o a un ser querido”.

¡Los desinfectantes son venenosos! Los expertos médicos anunciaron: “Bajo ninguna circunstancia se debe administrar ningún producto desinfectante al cuerpo mediante inyección, ingestión o cualquier otra vía”. Si esto sucede, llame a Control de Envenenamiento al 1-800-222-1222.

Además, NO se ha demostrado que la luz ultravioleta sea segura o efectiva para su uso en eliminar un virus, y la exposición a la luz ultravioleta en el exterior o de otras fuentes puede aumentar el riesgo de cáncer de piel.

El Condado de Harris emitió una orden de máscara obligatoria, el 27 de abril, reflejando los mandatos establecidos por San Antonio y Dallas y entre otras ciudades importantes del estado. Esta orden está vigente durante los próximos 30 días.

Bajo esta orden residentes de 10 años de edad y mayores deberán usar un cubrebocas que pueda ser una máscara, bufanda, bandana o pañuelo. Las máscaras o cubrebocas deben cubrir la nariz y la boca. Las únicas excepciones a la regla serán cuando uno haga ejercicio, coma, beba y si está solo en un lugar separado o en su hogar. Los funcionarios de salud dicen que las máscaras son necesarias para detener la propagación de gérmenes tanto como sea posible.
