COVID-19 / Coronavirus
The City of Ingleside is working to keep its citizens safe and informed during the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak. This COVID-19/Coronavirus page contains some of the most recent and important items for Ingleside and the surrounding community concerning the Coronavirus.
While it appears there is a surge of COVID cases in and around the Coastal Bend, we have been continually asked two questions:
- Where can I get a vaccine?
- Where can I be tested to see if I have COVID?
Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler
The Texas Vaccine Scheduler helps Texans get scheduled for a COVID-19 vaccine at clinics hosted by participating Texas public health entities.
Register on the Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler website. You will be notified by email or text when and where to get the vaccine. If there’s not a public health clinic near you, you will be directed to other places to get your vaccine.

For testing sites, please visit the Texas Division of Emergency Management website.
Tips for Staying Safe
Consider wearing a mask. Vaccinated or not, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces can help protect you and everyone close to you. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory virus, including COVID‑19:
- Consider wearing a mask. Vaccinated or not, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces can help protect you and everyone close to you.
- Wash hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same - use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are unavailable.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, knobs, and other places touched often
- Stay six feet apart from others
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
DSHS recommends that you practice social distancing. Social distancing involves staying away from other people to avoid catching or spreading illness. It’s a fancy term for avoiding crowds and minimizing physical contact.
Mayor Parker and all of our City Council have been tirelessly working to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, and leading local efforts that will ensure the needs of our citizens and small businesses are met during this difficult time in our city and across the world.
