  LOCAL PROTOCOLS FOR COVID-19 CHANGING  For the most part, the venue is responsible for defining and enforcing the COVID-19 Protocols for anyone coming into their establishment. We are talking masking, social distancing, attendance limits, even if attendees will be asked to remain seated (cocktail service). If the venue's version is in compliance with State and Federal guidelines, they are within their rights, and within their responsibility to the public, to define and display attendance requirements. Definitely get out to the clubs and catch top notch shows. Just be prepared: masks, social distancing, seating, and attendance levels. Let's be glad to cooperate, glad to enjoy!

SUPPORT OUR MEMBER BUSINESSES AROUND THE AREA
  Our Member Venues and Sponsors are part of San Antonio's business world. They service our communities, feed and entertain our families, employ our citizens. Your continuing support for your local artists and community businesses is so vital, so critical, so a-great-thing-to-do.

REOPENING AND HOW WE CAN HELP  The City of San Antonio has specific guidelines and protocols in place, especially for commercial business.  While some of our Member Venues and Sponsors have opened, following ramp-up models for occupancy, we ask everyone to responsibly support our opening businesses. Simply checking the websites / social media sites for the artists, venues, and businesses is the smart way to go about it. The City is instructing local commercial businesses to post their current COVID-19 protocols for their business. The simplest standards: if you are ill, do not go out ... avoid contact will ill people as best as possible ... practice social distancing (6 foot) ... if close contact will occur, wear protective facewear - it protects you and it protects others.  Your continuing support for your local community businesses is so vital, so critical, so a-great-thing-to-do. Be patient, be understanding, be flexible ... Texas Neighborly.
