COVID-19 Update
Austin-Travis County updated its reporting module this week for COVID-19 positive cases to include the number of recoveries from the disease, along with current hospitalizations, and breakdowns according to age group, sex and race/ethnicity. As of midday on Friday, April 10, there are currently 642 reported cases (up), 128 recoveries (up), 72 hospitalizations (down) and 7 deaths (same as previous day) in Travis County. In the two zip codes associated with the City of Lakeway (78734 and 78738), there are 19 reported cases, up by 2 from the previous day. Click here for a link to those updates.

Austin-Travis County is also working on a "Surge Plan" in case regular medical services are overwhelmed by an influx of COVID-19 cases. The plan would allow care in buildings previously purposed for patient care like former clinics or medical facilities. The current bed count is approximately 4,300 on an average day in Travis County. Hospitals this week are currently operating at about a 50% capacity according to Austin-Travis County .

Finally, there is an updated "Supplemental Emergency Order One" now in effect and posted on the Emergency Alert section of our website. The additional Stay At Home Orders include allowing restaurants to post temporary signs for their to-go, curbside pickup and home delivery services, allowing RVs or travel trailers in driveways without a limit on the number of days they may remain, and no late free accruals or suspensions for Solid Waste Services for non-payment.
