The city of Sugar Land does not have its own municipal health department. Fort Bend County Health and Human Services serves as the local health department for the city. The State requires laboratories, hospitals, and health professionals to report positive test results of COVID-19 to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) or the local health department. If a positive test result is reported directly to DSHS, that information is then shared with with the local health department.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) uses a public health process called contact tracing to help slow and contain the spread of COVID-19 in Texas.
Contact tracing is a method used to find and follow up with people who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. People who were around this individual are called contacts. By tracing the contacts of COVID-19 cases, having them self-isolate, if necessary, and testing, when appropriate, we can reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The purpose of the Coronavirus Self-Checker is to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care.
