Bay Area counties have begun breaking down counts for the coronavirus COVID-19 by city and region, and the data indicates that the Clear Lake and League City areas have a total of about 90 positive cases, not counting Houston numbers.

According to data released 5 p.m. March 31, Galveston County has a total of 106 cases, 46 of which are League City residents. That total is nearly three times as many as that of the next-highest, which is Texas City, at 17 cases, according to the data.

Of the 46 League City cases, at least 10 are League City employees: seven fire marshal's office employees and three police officers, League City officials recently told Community Impact Newspaper.

Of the 106 cases in the county, 21 have recovered, meaning 85 are active. Fifteen of those 85 have been hospitalized, and 70 are self-quarantined, according to the data.

A total of 1,156 Galveston County residents have been tested so far, according to the data.


Harris County has broken down its number of cases by quadrants: northwest, northeast, southwest and southeast. I-45 and I-10 act as the dividing lines between the quadrants.

As of 4 p.m. March 31, a total of 303 Harris County residents have contracted the coronavirus. A total of 43 positive cases reside in the southeast quadrant, which includes the Clear Lake area.

Of the 303 cases, 240 are active. A total of 61 victims have recovered, and two have died, according to the data.

Harris County data does not include the 377 positive cases reported as of March 31 in the city of Houston, which has not yet broken down data. Community Impact Newspaper will report the total number of cases for the Clear Lake part of Houston once the city has shared that data.
