I am reaching out to keep our communications open and share pertinent updates as our community organizes in response to the increasing concerns of COVID-19.
Last week, Austin-Travis County leaders declared a “local state of disaster” to proactively increase preventative measures and mitigation plans for events in the region. The City of Austin is closely monitoring this developing situation on all fronts.
As the Economic Development Department, our team is diligently working to develop the unprecedented path forward for our local creative industries and small businesses.
Know that we hear your concerns and your questions. We will face these challenging circumstances with your safety and well-being at the forefront of everything we do.
As a first step, I’ve gathered helpful resources in this newsletter to ensure that you’re informed on what has been determined to date.
