AUSTIN, Texas — The city of Austin has confirmed its first two presumptive positive cases of Covid-19.

Travis County leaders held a briefing to update the public on the two cases.

Neither case is believed to be a person-to-person spread.

The interim health authority says one male in his 60's is currently hospitalized and one female in her 30s is quarantined at home.

There are other people who live in that home and are being monitored and will eventually be tested.

Officials say that some of them don't have symptoms or have mild symptoms.

Officials are trying to track both patient's moves before getting sick.

All Austin ISD schools and offices are closed today.
