FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What level of precaution is the city of San Antonio taking during the COVID-19 outbreak?


On July 2, Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order-29 requiring all Texans to wear a face covering in public spaces in counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases, with few exceptions. The Governor also issued a proclamation giving mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on some outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people and making it mandatory that, with certain exceptions, people cannot be in groups larger than ten and must maintain six feet of social distancing from others. First-time offenders of the Order will receive a written or verbal warning. Those who violate the Order a second time will receive a fine of up to $250. Every subsequent violation is punishable also by a fine of up to $250. The Order specifics that no one can get jail time for a violation. As of July 1, businesses owners are required to to post signage which outlines COVID-19 symptoms at the entrance for customers and employees to see and educate themselves. In addition, large gatherings of more than 100 people are still prohibited. The following are exempted from this order, and therefore must implement a health and safety policy that includes masks where social distancing is not feasible, temperature and symptom checks, and protocols for maintaining social distancing by July 3 at noon.
