FROMDEEDA: As if being cooped up at home for several months on end worrying about contracting COVID-19 isn’t stressful enough, now triple-digit heat and West Nile virus-carrying mosquitoes have arrived in Austin. To help bring comfort during this “coronacoaster,” as this experience has been dubbed, we’re sharing some fresh reading material including our annual Real Estate Edition with a look at how many of our neighbors are buying/selling along with home improvement tips to make your home a place you don’t mind sheltering in for a little longer than normal.

FROMNICK: COVID-19 cases continue to rise locally, and it is important for residents to stay on top of the latest health guidelines and regulations set by the state of Texas and local city and county health ocials as the pandemic persists. Already, this month has seen numerous changes to plans for the coming school year (the latest can be found on Page 13), as well as a new ordinance requiring masks in public in Travis County (Page 17). Also, if you plan to travel this summer, be sure to check what health and safety rules are in place at your destination before you leave. You can read communityimpact.com each day for the latest changes during the pandemic.
