The Harris County Health Department has identified the 57 people who will be let go in upcoming job cuts. An email was sent to all employees today saying the layoffs would take about a week, and they do not expect to have another round. Harris County cut the health department budget by four percent.

Already, the county has warned of a hiring freeze, told workers they can't travel out of state, and there will be no cost of living adjustments.
