Central Austin Edition - June 2020






Now Open, Coming Soon &more

FROMDEEDA: My mom always told me to take care of myself because without our health we have nothing. She’s not the rst person to utter that line, but I think of it often as the pandemic presses on. Never in my lifetime have health precautions dominated more everyday activities and conversations than they do today. This month’s issue is our annual Health Care Edition where you can learn not only the latest regarding COVID-19, but also about medical treatment options for a variety of ailments in your neighborhood.

FROM JACK: I have to admit something slightly embarrassing: I was really nervous about getting tested for COVID-19. I saw videos on Twitter of public ocials getting the swab stuck up their nose, and I’m generally a baby when it comes to going to the dentist or getting blood drawn. So when I pulled up to the testing site, rolled down my driver’s side window and tilted my head back, I was expecting the worst. The experience was denitely uncomfortable and I didn’t know my nasal passage extended that far, but it was not as bad as I was expecting. You can now be tested at some locations in Austin for free even if you are asymptomatic. If you were in a large crowd—like I was covering recent protests—or if you feel a test is necessary, I would encourage you to go. It’s over in just a few seconds. Jack Flagler, EDITOR
