Travis, Williamson and Hays counties all belong to Texas Trauma Service Area O, which was downgraded from its status as a high-hospitalization area Jan. 30 after seven consecutive days with COVID-19 patients accounting for less than 15% of total hospitalized patients. Per state law, restaurants and most businesses in Travis, Williamson and Hays counties can begin operating at 75% capacity again.
Counties may also decide whether to reopen bars at 50% capacity; Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell and Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra have already announced that their counties’ bars may do so. Travis County Judge Andy Brown, however, has not and issued a statement Jan. 30 urging continued caution.
“This new development does not mean this deadly virus is no longer a threat. I continue to encourage everyone in Travis County to take extra steps to help mitigate any further spread of COVID-19,” Brown said. “Because vaccine supplies remain very limited, we must continue to stay home as much as possible and only travel for essential needs. When we must travel outside our home, always wear a mask and remain physically distant.”
Becerra likewise acknowledged limited vaccine supply in Hays County in a Jan. 31 news release.
“With the current severe lack of vaccine supply, the tremendous demand makes dispensing the doses a huge disappointment,” Becerra said.
Below are the providers receiving doses in Travis, Williamson and Hays counties this week. Addresses included are not necessarily where vaccines will be distributed, and all providers require preregistration. Information about registering for appointments or more information about the provider's protocol is linked where available.
