The City of Austin has been working with local, county, and state partners to help protect the health and wellness of both the community and employees during the rapidly changing coronavirus outbreak. As transmission has changed in Minnesota from travel–related to community spread, the city is making these changes while still ensuring it can provide essential services to residents.
