Current COVID-19 Info SA
Daily numbers of community infections in Bexar County have surpassed all previous surges of the pandemic and continue to climb.
Access to urgent care services, hospitals and emergency rooms is becoming more limited with longer wait times and/or not as many healthcare workers available as needed because of the high community infection rate.
While the omicron variant of COVID-19 appears to be milder, this variant is highly transmissible and causing so many infections that the number of hospitalizations is soaring.
Unvaccinated people, particularly those with underlying conditions, still are at high risk of serious illness when they contract COVID-19.
To provide timely information and helpful resources for San Antonio, Bexar County and surrounding communities, UT Health San Antonio, the City of San Antonio and the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics at the UT Health San Antonio’s Long School of Medicine, and UTSA are teaming up to provide our community relevant, usable information about the current COVID-19 environment.
