Despite facing uncertainty of the future, Cy-Fair residents came together to support one another, and businesses got creative to continue meeting needs. Take a look back at our coverage from the spring to see how the community responded to COVID-19.
- Businesses and restaurants saw their sales drop in the wake of stay-at-home orders and restrictions enacted to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Eateries pivoted to offer takeout and delivery services to stay afloat and meet customers’ needs.
- Local churches and religious organizations moved services online to keep their congregants safe and engaged. Upon regathering, faith leaders have continued to find creative ways to worship and connect in the community.
- Neighbors took to social media to contribute donations and time to serve residents who could not leave their homes due to the risk of contracting COVID-19.
- Social media was also used for good when it came to coordinating ways to make birthdays special for local children who could not celebrate as usual—from car parades to yard greetings.
- Nonprofits saw an all-time high level among Cy-Fair residents for assistance—especially when it came to putting food on the table.
- Cy-Fair hospitals ramped up their efforts to treat local residents afflicted by the virus and keep their employees safe by securing personal protective equipment. Senior living centers in the community offered virtual visits with residents’ loved ones unable to see them in person.
