Mayor Steve Adler announced today that Austin's 'Stay Home, Work Safe' order is extended to May 30th at the same time Judge Sarah Eckhardt announced 'Stay Home, Work Safe' orders are extended to June 15th for Travis County.
The number of people hospitalized in our community remains steady at about 90, with 2000 residents testing positive for Covid-19 so far. These orders are a reminder for us to keep vigilant regarding our own health and safety as well as the safety of others. Judge Eckhardt put it this way, "Ask yourself what's essential for me today? Who will I see? And do I know them well enough to find them if I get sick?"
