UT Austin students wear masks while walking on campus last week.

Austin Public Health leaders are giving their weekly update on the local impact of COVID-19 at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Interim Austin-Travis County Health Authority Dr. Mark Escott, APH Director Stephanie Hayden and APH Chief Epidemiologist Janet Pichette will be answering questions from the media.

On Tuesday, Escott told Travis County Commissioners Court that the coronavirus was spreading in Austin schools, but not as drastically as health officials originally feared.
