COVID-19

Info and Updates

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

If you develop symptoms or have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, seek medical advice.

Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room and tell them about your symptoms.

As far as we know, someone who has completed quarantine or has been released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people.

Older adults and people of any age with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, or heart disease, are at greater risk of severe illness from COVID-19.

Connection

On Tuesday, Austin community leaders will be hosting a call open to community leaders anywhere, to discuss responses and resources for the COVID-19 quarantine.

Precautions to Take

1. Cancel events whenever possible, to reduce the risk of transmission.

Pausing offline gathering for the time being will allow the healthcare system to keep up as people contract COVID, and exponentially reduce the number of deaths.

2. Do not attend live events if you have had cold- or flu-like symptoms, cough, or shortness of breath within 48 hours of the event. 

Even if you don't think it's COVID-19.

3. Wash your hands upon arriving at an event and frequently thereafter.

Wash your hands and wrists for at least 20 seconds using soap and water. Please continue to wash your hands frequently throughout events and gatherings, especially after contacting surfaces and before and after any contact with others.  And obviously, wash your hands before interacting with the food or beverage areas. 

4. Keep surfaces sanitized.

Sanitize common surfaces (table tops, door handles, bathroom counters, etc) throughout gathering spaces hourly. You can use a solution of 1 tablespoon to 1/2 cup (suggestions vary, I'd say use 1/4 cup to be safe) of unscented, liquid chlorine bleach in 1 gallon of water. Let the solution stand on the surfaces for a few minutes; then air dry or pat dry with clean paper towels..
