The City of San Antonio and Bexar County, along with emergency responders, hospital providers and appropriate agencies, have been proactively monitoring the situation regarding the spread of the Ebola virus. It’s significant to note that there are currently no suspected cases of the virus in San Antonio or Bexar County. City and county officials have stressed repeatedly that protecting the community, whether residents or convention or leisure visitors, is of utmost importance, and there is due diligence at work to ensure that.
Because of the serious nature of this disease, health and hospital leaders have been working to ensure that if there were to be a suspected case reported in the San Antonio area, a coordinated effort of response would be in effect, expeditiously and efficiently.
Mayor Ivy Taylor said this week, “I have complete confidence in our public health experts, emergency responders and health care facilities, and I can assure you that my highest priority is the public safety and health of our community.”
