Facts and information about COVID-19

Coronavirus

The City of Schertz would like to remind residents that, while the risk for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our area is low, emergency management officials are monitoring the situation daily.

City officials would like to encourage residents to stay informed on the latest developments surrounding COVID-19 by monitoring information provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For more information in our area, visit sanantonio.gov/Health/News/Alerts/CoronaVirus.

Coronaviruses are most commonly spread through coughing and sneezing, personal contact like shaking hands, and touching a surface with the virus and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Reducing spread as quickly as possible will help protect our most vulnerable populations, such as the elderly. There are simple steps everyone can take to help prevent spreading them:

  • 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 throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

WHAT DO I DO IF I THINK I MAY BE INFECTED WITH COVID-19?

If you are experiencing symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath, please contact your healthcare provider. Your doctor will evaluate your condition and can help make the decision whether you should get tested for coronavirus. Please visit the San Antonio Metro Health Department webpage here for information on testing guidelines and criteria.
