On July 15th, Bexar County’s chief executive, County Judge Nelson Wolff, issued his Executive Order NW-13, which extended earlier executive orders requiring that businesses have health and safety policies requiring masks and that they post a list of COVID-19 symptoms by entrances.
This latest executive order extended the requirements to August 12, 2020. Businesses can be fined up to $1,000 for violations, but can put up a poster provided by Bexar County to fulfill the requirement. Judge Wolff’s first order requiring businesses to require face masks was issued on June 17th.
The same order restated the Governor’s requirement that anyone aged 10 or older wear a face covering when in a commercial building or in an outdoor public space when social distancing is not possible. The order provides a long list of persons who do not need to wear face coverings.
The order prohibits social and family gatherings of more than 10 people, though with a long list of exceptions, allows restaurants to only operate up to 50% capacity, and closes bars for inside seating (but not for pickup or delivery).
