Nirenberg reported 60,442 total COVID-19 cases and 1,211 total deaths in Bexar County, as of Friday, an increase of 184 new cases. Two new deaths have been reported today.
The 7-day moving average of cases is 133.
City officials also reported that 200 patients were hospitalized, 80 were in the intensive care unit and 32 were in ventilators. There are 12% of staffed beds available and 75% of ventilators available.
Wolff said while his updated executive order says bars can open early Tuesday, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission should light-green the reopening of those establishments. He hopes the bars will reopen by the end of next week or early next week.
