    SAN ANTONIO (May 28, 2020) — City Manager Erik Walsh briefed the Mayor and City Council on the phased approach to re-opening City services. The strategic four phase plan prioritizes the health and safety of City employees, residents, visitors and those who do business with the City by implementing protocols that aim to reduce and minimize the spread of COVID-19. The plan is guided by the methodology and proposed progress indicators established by the COVID-19 Health Transition Team.
     
    “As one of the largest employers in San Antonio, we are proud to set the example of carefully re-opening services with guidance from our public health officials. The health and safety of my City teammates and our customers and visitors is my top priority,” said City Manager Erik Walsh. “Over the next few months we will continue to have staff working remotely as we redesign our work environment to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The return to work plan will drive productivity, cross-departmental collaboration and customer service, while implementing social distancing protocols, remote work and flexible schedules.”

    SAN ANTONIO (May 19, 2020) — “Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Judge Nelson Wolff issued separate but joint updates to their Stay Home, Work Safe Orders to continue slowing the spread of COVID-19. The orders are effective immediately, May 19, 2020 and if extended by City Council at this Thursday’s meeting, will last until 11:59 p.m. on June 4, or until it is either rescinded, superseded or amended.” 
      
    “As our economy slowly reopens with a phased approach, the physical distancing and other common-sense measures recommended by our public safety officials are as important as ever,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “The way to return to public activities without being forced back to stricter requirements is to behave responsibly and with consideration for others. These orders guide us toward safely reviving our economy.” 
      
    “The measures we have implemented over the past few months have led to Bexar County having a very low infection rate. With this new order, we are continuing to ensure the health and safety of our community while ensuring that everyone can go back to work and go about their lives,” said Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff.
