The City of Austin and Travis County have extended the local stay-at-home orders through February 16, 2021.
Austin’s Order extends existing requirements for face coverings, social distancing, and limiting gatherings. It also adds quarantine requirements that are consistent with the updated Austin Public Health quarantine guidelines.
Travis County’s Order also extends existing requirements for face coverings, social distancing, and limiting gatherings; and adds the same quarantine requirements.
Additionally, the orders now include requirements for quarantine, requirements for dine-in or indoor food or beverage services, and define “high-risk individuals” and “high-risk settings.” The new definitions align the Health Authority Rules with Austin Public Health’s recent change to quarantine guidelines, officials say.
