Businesses and city services for workers continued to adjust throughout the coronavirus crisis. As restrictions on the community changed to reflect current health conditions, businesses expanded hours, offered new retail services and looked for more employees.

On Friday, June 19, Bexar County began offering masks to businesses they could use to comply with County Judge Nelson Wolff's new executive order mandating businesses require customers to wear masks or a facial covering while in their establishments.

Despite Governor Greg Abbott's order allowing some businesses to re-open, many on San Antonio's South Side remain closed or open for curbside pickup only.

Gov. Greg Abbott’s newest executive order allowed stores to reopen Friday as long as retailers keep crowds to 25% of capacity. However, at least three major San Antonio malls remained quiet.
