Mandatory Face Masks, Social Distancing, Shop Local – Message from Mayor Rosenthal

  04/23/2020

Neighbors—

Here is the latest:

State Update—Non-essential retail stores will be able to open tomorrow, April 24th, but ONLY if their goods can be picked up,  delivered by mail or delivered to a customer’s doorstep. Please check with the business in advance. The Governor still does not allow for in-store shopping at non-essential businesses. The State Order makes clear that businesses that provide services (spas, barbershop, gyms) can still be closed by local order, which they currently are under Bexar County’s Order.

County Update—The County requires face coverings (masks) and since the Governor is silent regarding that issue, the County Order is still in effect.

Dog Park—The non-profit group that operates the Bark Park has closed the park until April 30th for maintenance. Currently, we anticipate the Bark Park re-opening on May 1st subject to social distancing and/or limitations on numbers in the park at a particular time.

Next Update—The Governor has a news conference scheduled for Monday, April 27th, subsequent to which we will send a further update.

Thanks—Most importantly, thank a first responder, a health care worker or anyone else working in any business helping us through this time.

Stay safe. Stay well. Shop local.

Mayor Bobby Rosenthal
