Coronavirus Updates – July 20, 2020

City issues health directive ordering that all schools in Bexar County will conduct remote learning through September 7.

 Executive Order mandates the wearing of a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building, or when in an outdoor public space wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of distance from another person not in the same household.

Governor Abbott’s proclamation prohibits gathering in groups of more than 10 and requires social distancing from those not in your group.

We Must All Continue To Do Our Part to Slow The Spread of the Coronavirus.

  • WEAR FACE MASKS WHEN IN PUBLIC.
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Contact a health worker if you have symptoms; fever and a dry cough are most common.
  • DON’T touch your face.
  • DON’T travel if you have a fever and cough.
  • Practice Social Distancing

Stay Healthy and Do Not Take Any Unnecessary Risks.
