THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough, in consultation with Montgomery County Public Health District, has issued an Immediate Shelter-in-Place order for The Conservatory at Alden Bridge. This order requires the following:
1.)No one shall enter or exit the address or individual living units at this address: 6203 Alden Bridge Dr. The Woodlands, TX 77382. The only exemptions to this order are personnel required to maintain the facility, food services, medical professionals, caregivers, or law enforcement.
2.)Until 6:00 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, March 31st), residents may leave the facility in order to stay in another household provided they continue to self-isolate. All individuals located in the household where the resident has relocated must also self-isolate for the duration of this order.

It is important to note for accuracy in reporting, The Conservatory is not considered a nursing home or assisted-living facility. This is an apartment complex for the 55+ community that offers communal dining and recreational activities. Since the first case of COVID-19 was diagnosed in relation to this facility, all communal activities were suspended, and residents were asked to stay in their individual apartments and monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19.
Public Health guidance to the apartment complex’s residents who choose to stay in their individual units are as follows, to mitigate the spread of COVID-19:
1.)Stay in your own apartment at all times.
2.)Do not let visitors, including family, neighbors or providers, in your apartment.
3.)Always stay at least 6 feet away from any other person.
4.)Take your temperature twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.
5.)If you develop a fever or cough, call Public Health at 936-523-5040 (24 hours a day).
6.)If you have trouble breathing, call 911.
7.)Wash your hands, for 20 seconds, using soap at least four times a day, or as much as possible, especially after using the bathroom and before eating.
