The Texas Flood Registry is a project that supports disaster recovery by collecting health and housing information from Texas residents in storm-affected areas. To better serve the community, the Texas Flood Registry created the COVID-19 Registry in April of 2020. Unlike the regional focus of the Texas Flood Registry, the COVID-19 Registry took a national approach to combat the widespread threat of COVID-19. Although the COVID-19 Registry is no longer active, the Texas Flood Registry continues its work to understand the health and housing effects of major natural disasters.

Data from the registry will be stored in a highly secure system built by Rice University. We plan to store the information we collect in this study for as long as researchers are interested in using it. Findings from the registry will be published but will not include any information that would identify you or any other participant. While confidentiality can never be guaranteed, the way we store and share the data has been designed to make sure that data will not be seen by those who do not have permission to see it.
If researchers wish to use information from the registry, they must receive approval from the registry team at Rice University and their home organization. They will also need to show how their research could benefit communities. Future research may look at the economic and health impacts of COVID-19, as well as ways to address them and prepare for future public health emergencies.
