Face Masks Are Now Mandatory For Most Of San Antonio

San Antonio is now mandating that all residents 10 years of age and older wear a cloth face covering in public setting, as part of the latest efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The new directive, which comes as an addendum to the current stay-home order, is effective immediately. Meanwhile, beginning this weekend, local businesses will be required to “provide face coverings and training for appropriate use to employees” in workspaces where people are in close proximity.

The city says that while bandannas, handkerchiefs and scarfs can be used to cover one’s face, “it is strongly recommended” that residents don’t purchase hospital-grade masks that are vital for healthcare workers and first responders.
