Austin's COVID-19 risk has been moved from Stage 5 to Stage 4 effective Tuesday, according to Austin Public Health authorities.
Under Stage 4, experts recommend Austinites avoid non-essential travel and gatherings over 10 people. Masking and social distancing should still be maintained when in contact with those who are not members of one's immediate household. While Stage 5 recommends not dining out, Stage 4 gives the ok to dine out. Businesses may operate between 25-50% capacity. Schools should limit attendance at sporting events to those participating in those events.
Officials expected to move to Stage 4 in the second half of February. Although hospitalization levels are still at Stage 5 rates, levels continue to be on a downward trend. Officials also said Austin could go back into Stage 5 as a result of Super Bowl weekend gatherings.
