As our local hospitals deal with repercussions of this winter storm, we need to do our part to prevent injury and stay out of the Emergency Rooms. If you drive, please remain vigilant on the roads as some areas remain icy. Watch out for ice on sidewalks, stairs, or falling from buildings and trees as it starts to thaw. Further, as a citywide boil notice continues in Austin and other parts of Texas, bring water to a rolling boil for at least two minutes before using it for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing your teeth or handwashing. Let the water cool before using.
As always, continue to heed public health guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Double mask, keep your distance, and practice hand hygiene.
