Task Force

I am excited to announce the formation of a COVID-19 Task Force to combine resources in fighting this serious virus.

This ensures proper coordination between Parker County, the County’s Emergency Operations Center, all cities, as well as community partners throughout the County.

It establishes processes and protocols to account for all contingencies that impact Parker County residents. Each member will have defined roles and responsibilities specific to their respective strengths in the County.        

Task Force objectives include:   

  • Working with our medical network to ensure adequate supplies of tests, personal protection equipment are maintained
  • Continual monitoring of available COVID-19 tests in the County, potential for more, who will conduct testing, limitations based on risk factors, Parker County Hospital District testing, and private partnerships 
  • Working with Hospital District in progressing “drive-through” concept for testing
  • Monitoring County-wide government personal protection equipment (PPE) inventory, burn rate and needs
  • Working with surrounding Counties regarding age, gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic, etc. of hospitalizations to create strategy for Parker County
  • Daily check-ins with vulnerable facilities, i.e. nursing homes, assisted living, ensuring PPE is on-hand as needed
  • Planning and preparing for businesses to reopen
  • Developing communication strategies for residents and businesses
  • Working with Ministerial Alliance, ISD’s and community organizations in providing services: Food, Supplies

The days of governmental entities working in “silos” is over! I want to extend a special thanks to the City of Weatherford, as well as other cities, Emergency Service Districts, the Economic Development Council, Hospital District and community leaders in this unprecedented approach to working together!
