Austin to Close Restaurants and Bars

6th Street in Austin

 

Earlier this afternoon, Austin Mayor Steve Adler ordered all restaurants and bars to close, and limited all gatherings to 10 people or less. The orders align with recommendations from President Donald Trump and go one step further than the CDC’s recommendation to restrict gatherings to fewer than 50 people. Restrictions on gatherings do not apply to grocery stores and pharmacies and curbside pickup, take-0ut, and delivery are still allowed at restaurants under the order. Violating the order carries a $1,000 fine.

Many other U.S. cities have moved to temporarily closing bars and restaurants to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 including Houston and Dallas. So far, there are 10 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the Austin-Travis County area.
