From June 19-22, Fort Bend County reported 406 new, confirmed cases of the coronavirus.
Furthermore, the seven-day rolling average of new coronavirus cases hit 104.29 June 22, nearly double what the number was last week.
In a statement online, Fort Bend County Health and Human Services said it is investigating the recent high number of new cases to determine if there is a specific connection between the cases or if they are a result of other factors, such as the phased reopening of the state and increased disease in the community.
