Austin Could Move To Stage Two COVID Risk Next Week

Austin-Travis County could go into the Stage Two Coronavirus Risk category next week. Dr. Mark Escott announced today the lowering is because people have been dedicated to social distancing, mask-wearing, and getting the COVID vaccine. Escott noted almost all new virus cases are in people under the age of 50. Almost 40-percent of Travis County's population has been fully vaccinated.
