Mask Directive 08-11-21



Effective Wednesday, August 11, 2021, all City facilities will require the use of masks for both staff and visitors. Also, San Antonio and Bexar County Health authorities issued a health directive for the upcoming school year which applies to all public schools from pre-kindergarten through grade 12th effective immediately. Schools shall follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for universal indoor masking and require all students (age 2 and older), staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face mask indoors.

Schools shall notify the student’s parents or guardians when the school learns that a student was in close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual on campus or during a school-related event. Unvaccinated individuals who are determined to be in close contact with a COVID-19 positive person shall quarantine for 14 days after their last contact with a person who has COVID-19. Students, staff, teachers, and visitors shall remain off campus and not attend any school-sponsored events during their quarantine period. Fully vaccinated individuals should get tested three to five days after their exposure even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask in indoor public spaces for 14 days. Fully vaccinated individuals need not quarantine.
