According to the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the COVID-19 community risk level was deemed “high” as of June 28.
The city’s COVID-19 dashboard, updated June 28, said Bexar County has 815 new positive cases and 205 total hospitalizations.
Metro Health officials urged residents to take precautions as many people plan to celebrate the July Fourth holiday weekend.
“Although we are documenting an increase in new cases and hospitalizations, we remain vigilant and remind everyone to celebrate safely and follow the COVID-19 prevention strategies: mask up in crowded indoor places, get tested if you have been exposed or have symptoms, and stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccine and boosters,” Metro Health Director Claude Jacob said.
Metro Health urged residents to check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a list of prevention strategies.
According to Metro Health, people who have had COVID-19 or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 can use an online calculator to determine how long they may stay in quarantine.
Metro Health also reminded residents of available pop-up vaccination clinics. The city said a static pop-up clinic is open on Fridays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Frank Garrett Center, 1226 NW 18th St.
According to a news release, Metro Health continues to offer a $100 H-E-B gift card while supplies last for those who have yet to be fully vaccinated. The incentive is available at the Metro Health immunization clinic and its pop-up clinics only, the release said.
