Lunchtime in downtown Hutto is typically marked by a smattering of cars parked along East and Farley Streets, patrons strolling into the Texan Cafe, The Downtown Hall of Fame or grabbing coffee at East Social House. But now, on a Tuesday at noon amid the coronavirus pandemic, the streets are empty.
All nonessential businesses have been closed for weeks. Residents have been ordered to stay at home. Schools are closed for the remainder of the spring semester. With Hutto residents working, studying and staying put within their homes, here is a photo gallery that gives a snapshot of what the city looks like with the countywide and statewide orders in effect.
