As COVID-19 continues gripping our nation, our Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (who is known for working non-stop) is doing his best to mitigate it’s spread and “flatten the curve”. We have compiled a list of tweets that are relevant to slowing the progression of the Coronavirus.

Being Houston-based, but having a global reach, the HFR team has researched how COVID-19 has affected various countries across the world (we are an international team that can research in multiple languages) and created dozens of articles to make social distancing a little easier, more active, and more fun at home

 HFR founder Samir Becic has been following world news since the start of the outbreak and has very encouraging things to say about Mayor Turner and the city’s actions at slowing the spread of the virus. “Measures put in place by Mayor Sylvester Turner and the City’s leadership are a great balance between keeping citizens safe and maintaining essential businesses. I believe that they’re doing a great job given the circumstances, especially since I’ve been staying updated on other major cities’ responses. I’m asking all Houstonians to follow the advice given to the best of their abilities because long-term, this will save lives.” says Samir.
