The city of Austin announced it’s first two confirmed cases of covid-19 (neither of which are community transfer) and the Austin school district and UT-Austin immediately shut down today. We are in the Round Rock school district immediately to the north, but our schools are open for business, although the district told parents that if they want to keep their kids home they would not be counted absent. Spring break is next week, and UT has already extended it by a week and students will return to online classrooms. I am almost certain that our schools will extend break for a week. Fortunately, we are in a position where that won’t be much of a burden. I know there are a lot of families, though, who will be in a world of hurt.
I’m already sick of this bullshit.
Also, good morning.
