Dear Chamber Members and Partners:
A Stay Home, Work Safe order for Bexar County and San Antonio went into effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. on April 9.
Many of you have reached out via email, phone calls, or text messages to ask if your business is included or exempt from the Order. Given the newness of the Order, we simply do not have all the answers. We are, however, working with our partners at the City and County to provide answers to these important questions.
The businesses we know for a fact are exempt from the order include:
Air Conditioning Companies
Architecture and Engineering Firms
Building Cleaning and Maintenance Services
CISA Sector Professionals
Educators - School Districts have their own rules on what will remain open
Health Care Services
Home Cleaning Services
Real Estate Services

Businesses that are not exempt:

Nursing Homes - Closed to Visitors
Swimming Pools - Public

If you still have questions on whether your business is exempt from the Stay Home, Work Safe Order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to find an answer for you.
My team and I will continue providing you with the most accurate information available.
Stay tuned, and stay vigilant and healthy!
