AUSTIN (KXAN) — Members of the Austin City Council will meet Thursday for a special COVID-19 meeting, where they may consider future restrictions in the city.
New information from models may help them decide if the city should move to Stage 5 restrictions, which may make the council ban outdoor gatherings.
In a video lasting less than five minutes, Amanda Dugan and Will DuPree discuss that story and these others in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:
