-Hospital rates have improved over the last 7 days Austin businesses can return to operating at 75% capacity and elective surgeries may resume, according to Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order which dictates capacity limits based on area hospitalization rates.
Should Austin-area COVID-19 hospitalizations again rise above 15% of capacity for seven consecutive days, businesses will have to operate at 50% capacity, while elective surgeries would be put on hold.
Austin, however, remains under Stage 5 of the City's risk-based guidelines, meaning it is recommended all residents avoid gatherings with anyone outside their own households, avoid non-essential travel and only use contactless options for businesses.
-In Williamson county bars have been allowed to reopen at 50% capacity due to improved hospitalizations over the last 7 days
