Travis County pausing in-person jury trials due to COVID-19 spike, report says

AUSTIN, Texas — Jury trials are reportedly on pause again as Travis County and Austin deal with another surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

Just weeks prior, Travis County reopened courts to jury trials to address a backlog of cases. According to KVUE’s media partners at the Austin American-Statesman, on Monday, County officials closed the courthouses.

Only 10 ICU beds were available in Central Texas on Monday, Aug. 2.

The threshold for Stage 5 in Austin-Travis County is 50 to 90 new hospital admissions, depending on the rate of increase. Austin and Travis County are officially under Stage 4 guidelines, however.
