-News sources say it is possible that there will be more changes to COVID-19 orders as Austin-Travis County numbers decline The current orders are set to expire today (9/30) and officials are expected to issue new ones either today or tomorrow. They're reportedly looking at expanding the outdoor gatherings rule since there seems to have been some success in slowing the spread of the coronavirus. While numbers are on the decline and the officials are considering updating regulations, Mayor Adler says that everyone still must wear masks and follow guidelines to help slow the spread further.
-“We were nervous about Labor Day, we haven't really seen a spike associated with that. We were nervous about all the people coming from the hurricane, we haven't really seen a spike associated with that," Adler says. "We have had more cases associated with students but they seem to be contained thus far with the students' group and so long as we have the virus and contain the virus, that gives us the ability in our community to do more things. Only works if we wear masks."
