More than 100 more cases identified in Cy-Fair

Hospitalizations for coronavirus are rising across Texas, but a recent poll shows that many Texas voters may not take a coronavirus vaccine if one is developed.

The poll, conducted by the Texas Tribune and the University of Texas, shows that only 42 percent of Texas voters would try to get the vaccine, the Tribune reported, while 36 percent said they would not. This is a drop from a previous poll they had conducted in June, which showed 59 percent of Texas voters would try to get the vaccine.


There is significant skepticism around a potential vaccine as well, the Tribune reported, with polling showing 41 percent think a COVID-19 vaccine would be provided before being proven safe and effective.

While Texas still waits for a vaccine, cases have still been going up around Cy-Fair. Data from Harris County Public Health shows a total of 962 active cases in the area as of 4 p.m. Friday, which is an increase of more than 100 cases since last week.

There were no more deaths from COVID-19 reported this week, however, with the number of deaths remaining stagnant at 91.

Data was compiled from the ZIP codes in the Cypress Creek Mirror’s coverage area: 77040, 77041, 77065, 77070, 77086, 77095, 77429 and 77433. The ZIP code with the highest number of cases, 77040, dropped this week from 242 to 234 active cases, but increases were seen in other ZIP codes like 77070, rising from 125 to 151 cases, and 77086, rising from 138 to 160 active cases.
