Dear North SA Chamber Members,

For your information, the San Antonio, COVID-19 Economic Transition Team Report  (ETT) and Press Release (links) was presented today during a joint City Council and Bexar County Commissioners Court meeting. Replays of the meeting can be found on the City’s Facebook page at @cosagov .

The COVID-19 ETT, appointed by Mayor Nirenberg and County Judge Wolff, was focused on lending a broad-ranging business perspective to the Health Transition Team (HTT) Advisory Guidelines to reopen the local economy while also considering the guidelines that help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

The ETT guidelines provide three key deliverables to support the region’s safe reopening by: 

  • Developing a local playbook
  • Creating a marketing & public relations plan
  • Identifying & facilitating access to business resources

The ETT report released today includes recommendations for safely reopening businesses within Bexar County and is intended to build on the standards outlined in the Governor's Open Texas Report -April 27. Also today, Governor Abbott expanded business openings in Texas and created Surge Response Teams to Combat COVID-19. A list of the latest business checklists are available on the Governor's Open Texas website.

We encourage you to review the ETT Report and contact your City and Bexar County officials with any questions, concerns or recommendations you may have. 

The North SA Chamber will continue to keep you updated on the latest developments through direct email, alerts, social media and our NSAC COVID-19 Resource pag e .  Please let us know if you have any questions.

We’re here for you!
