Bexar County has launched of the “COVID -19 Essential Items Bag” program to support small businesses in the transition to “moderate risk” COVID-19 protocols. The program provides a free, one-week supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) to sole proprietors and businesses with less than 25 employees located in the suburban cities and unincorporated areas of the county.
Businesses within the San Antonio city limits should register on the City’s website or by calling 3-1-1 for supplies.
The ability for businesses to obtain and utilize personal protective equipment (touchless thermometers, facemasks, hand sanitizer, gloves and Plexiglas covering) to help protect their employees is critical in helping our community get back to work and stay at work. We hope that this program will jump-start the transition while businesses line up long-term supplies.
Because COVID -19 Essential Items are being provided on a one-time basis, businesses are recommended to establish vendor relationships to allow them continued access to PPE going forward and to buy local where possible. A list of local PPE vendors can be found here.
Due to limited supply, every consideration was given in an attempt to meet demand. All of the current bags have been distributed.
Businesses **within the San Antonio city limits** should register on the City’s website or by calling 3-1-1 for supplies.
