San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and City Council voted Thursday to officially extend “Stay Home, Work Safe” orders.
Nirenberg’s sixth declaration, announced on Wednesday evening, is in effect through May 19. The order was pending city council approval. Council voted 10-1 to extend the declaration.
The “Stay Home, Work Safe” order is consistent with Gov. Greg Abbott’s orders, which still prohibits large gatherings but allows certain services to reopen, according to City Attorney Andy Segovia.
