With nothing on their agendas for months to come, organizers of music festivals in Belgium want to use their know-how to help the coronavirus vaccination campaign. The Belgian government has set up the goal to vaccine about 70 percent of the country’s population, the equivalent of eight million people, when efficient COVID-19 shots become available.

HOUSTON (CW39) Now that the Holiday season is over health officials say COVID-19 cases will increase in the days to come and the only way to help slow down the curve is to get tested. It usually takes two to three weeks after people have been exposed to the virus for them to become infected, develop symptoms, get tested and receive their results. Health experts say, don’t wait. Get tested now to find out if you have COVID-19.

Harris County Public Health (HCPH) is offering free tests and multiple sites across the city. Register at or call 832-927-7575.
