Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner raised the specter of imposing a curfew if the spread of COVID-19 continues to increase during the holiday season in a joint press conference where they urged residents to avoid holiday gatherings.

Hidalgo skirted a question about what the numerical trigger would be for a curfew, but later noted the danger of hitting the level that Galveston County has reached that triggered tighter restrictions imposed by the state.
