Austin Public Health issued guidance for local school reopening on Friday evening.

Austin Public Health issued guidance on Friday for a phased-in reopening of schools, which links recommended on-campus capacity to the risk level.

For example, Travis County is currently at a Stage 4. According to the new guidance, schools should limit on-campus learning to 25% of the school population at this stage.

Austin-Travis County Interim Health Authority Dr. Mark Escott also adopted new emergency rules on Friday, which state that schools must follow the phased-in approach unless it will result in a loss of funding from the Texas Education Agency.
