TXCPA-SA knows that many of our members operating in the City of San Antonio and Bexar County have questions about the Stay Home, Work Safe orders issued jointly by both governing bodies on March 23, 2020. Please see the following information for more details.

Y’all stay healthy out there. We can’t wait to see you again when COVID-19 is vanquished!

Dear Business Leader,

This email is to inform you that Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff issued separate, but joint Stay Home, Work Safe orders today to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The order is effective beginning at 11:59 p.m. on March 24, 2020 and if approved by City Council at this Thursday’s meeting, will last until 11:59 p.m. on April 9, or until it is either rescinded, superseded, or amended.

The Mayor and Judge ordered all businesses to close and stop operations other than allowing employees to work from home, maintaining security and maintenance of the business’ property and facilitating information technology services that allow employees to work from home.

Businesses and organizations that are providing products and services that are needed by the community during this crisis are exempted. The followed exempted businesses may continue operating, provided they exercise proper social distancing:

  • Healthcare operations, including hospitals, clinics, dentists, pharmaceutical companies and veterinary offices;
  • Government functions to provide for the health, safety and welfare of the public, including first responders, military personnel; trash collection; and water and electric utilities;
  • Schools and education personnel supporting public and private K-12 schools, colleges and universities who are facilitating distance learning;
  • Companies providing or maintaining infrastructure, such as the construction of public works, housing and other infrastructure that supports critical needs, such as water, sewer, gas and electricity, internet and telecommunications;
  • Businesses related to transportation, including gas stations, repair shops, car dealerships, manufacturers, public transportation, such as buses, taxis, rideshare companies and the airport;
  • Information technology companies that provide and maintain internet and telecommunications systems

  • Charitable organizations providing food, shelter and services to economically disadvantaged or vulnerable populations, including animals;
  • Hotels and other temporary residence facilities;
  • Businesses that provide home maintenance and other services that individuals need to work from home, such as mail and shipping companies, building maintenance, plumbers, electricians, exterminators and professional services, such as legal or accounting services necessary to comply with legally required activities, such as filing taxes;
  • News media, including newspapers, television, radio and other media outlets providing information to the public;
  • Financial institutions, such as banks, credit unions and title companies;
  • Childcare services;
  • Worship services, provided services are distributed by video, teleconference or other remote measures;
  • Funeral services;
  • Business and operations necessary to the 16 critical infrastructure sectors identified by the National Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA.)

Only businesses and organizations that are providing these necessary products or services to the public during this public health crisis will be allowed to continue to operate. All other businesses shall close, but may allow employees to work from home.
