Masks, and latest orders

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Given the sharp increase in Covid-19 cases seen in Austin this past week, Mayor Steve Adler has once again updated orders intended to slow the spread of the virus in the city. The new orders, which are effective as of 11:59 p.m. on June 22 through Aug. 15, are embedded in their entirety below. Notably, the orders ask that “social gatherings be avoided or minimized” with groups of more than 10 individuals (not of the same residence) prohibited. In addition, face coverings or masks are required under most circumstances, and Austin businesses now must require employees and patrons to wear face coverings or face a fine of up to $1,000.
