[ARCHIVED] City of Schertz announces four new cases of COVID-19


Latest Update April 7 as of 8:00 Am

Schertz has received confirmation of four new cases of COVID-19, two in Bexar County and two in Guadalupe County. The individuals are self-isolating at home. At this time it is unknown how three of the four patients came in contact with COVID-19, and these cases are still under investigation. The fourth case has been determined to be caused by community spread. These additional cases bring the City’s total confirmed cases to eight.

There are things everyone can do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet apart and avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Minimizing exposure is especially important for people who are 65 or older or who have an underlying health condition like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or cancer. People in those groups have a higher risk of developing severe disease if they do get COVID-19, and the safest thing for them during an outbreak will be to stay home as much as possible and minimize close contact with other people.
