Coronavirus in Texas

Austin health officials say three people being treated for COVID-19; UT and Austin ISD schools close for the day

Two of those positive tests came from people living outside Travis County. Austin health officials said none of the cases are believed to be the result of community spread. UT-Austin's president also said he is self-quarantining after his wife tested positive.
