I keep hearing that if we all Social distance properly now, this is the peak and we can end this by May. could you speak to timeline/estimate of when we will ultimately be able to return to a more “normal” lifestyle. Obviously there’s various orders that have deadlines - but as far as the real virus lifespan goes, where are we at in the peak?
The engine had a few blocks that cover some form of infected and asymptomatic. is this to cover the incubation period of COVID-19, or is it possible to be a carrier of this particular virus and never show symptoms?
how will we know when this is truly over? like how did China decide it was safe to close their last COVID-19 clinic? I feel like if we don’t know someone has symptoms, wouldn’t this just keep going on and on until everyone got sick?
What are recommendations to cities and states — that have managed the rate of infection well—manage the flow of people that come from places with high levels of infections, especially when adjacent?
Are there plans for the consortium you deceived to have an advocacy arm? so that data scientists and public health officials are speaking to Texas legislators, etc as policy decisions need to be made?
could you speak to the urban v rural spread as it stands right now and projections for the next few weeks?
Are there any labs open for screening COVID-19 patients?
Sorry ignore the question.
Any insights on why high density populations like India have been able to manage the spread and severity of the virus better, does it have to do with alternative medicines, dietary habits, other?
Are there any labs in UT open for screening COVID-19 patients?
Yes we will certainly see a shift in the real estate market! email me if you have questions: email@example.com

How is Austin/Travis County doing in relation to other comparable-size areas concerning the total number of COVID-19 cases?
can i speak to this aspect on the economy?
Any thoughts on banking? It’s been branch centric historically. Cash transactions seem harder in this environment.
Austin Public Health recently recommended schools closing through the end of the school year. Would you agree with that recommendation as an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 based on the models you are seeing?
I would like to see Spencer'
s response after he watches my kids for 2 weeks

How likely is it that we will see "waves" of COVID-19, perhaps requiring intermittent isolation orders from government throughout 2020, until a vaccine is widely available?
how likely is it that COVID-19 flows from Northern Hemisphere to Southern and back could cause a second wave? or what are the leading indicators for that?
What does the supply chain look like for test manufacturing?
Many non profits and businesses are postponing their large scale events/festivals until the Fall. Do you think it is likely that we will be in a position to have large scale events/festivals by the Fall in consideration of public health?
Kelsey - could you please link the agenda again. If it’s a hassle, no worries
Thank you, Spencer!!
Thank you all for the great questions!
Thank you very much! very informative!
Thanks so much for your time, Spencer.
Thank you for hosting AYC and thank you Spence!
Forgot to mention - fill out your 2020 census! More important than ever to make sure we have proper demographic data for emergency aid, etc. —> my2020census.gov —> It’s less than 10 minutes :)
Thanks Becky! So true! :)
Is Austin doing anything for the homeless population? They can’t necessarily shelter in place or self isolate without a home. Just curious
What I’ve seen is that they are requesting that those who can find a shelter space should, but otherwise to practice social distancing as best as possible
Or on Zoom calls
