City issues new orders for residents

Monday, July 6, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Over the weekend, you probably got an alert about new face mask requirements in the state of Texas. In conjunction with that order, Austin has also issued new orders as all key indicators for coronavirus continue to rise. The full list of new regulations is online here. Of note, the new orders reaffirm that everyone (with limited exceptions) must wear face coverings and avoid social gatherings, and vulnerable individuals should avoid being in groups of more than two. In addition, the mayor’s orders ask that businesses operate at a lower capacity than permitted and maintain a log of customers to aid in tracking.
