How will San Antonio enforce ‘stay home’ rule

San Antonio (KTSA News) – As the deadline for the Stay Home, Work Safe order draws near, people are wondering if they’ll need documentation to prove they’re employed by a business that’s allowed to remain open. Will police pull you over and question you?

Jeff Coyle, Government and Public Affairs Director for the city of San Antonio, is trying to calm those fears.

“San Antonio Police are not going to pull you over if you are outside of your home, and you do not need a permission slip to prove you work for a business that is allowed to remain open,” said Coyle.  “We expect the public to follow the Stay Home order, and our enforcement efforts will focus on the businesses that should be closed, and that proper social distancing measures are being followed by those that are open.”

The  City of San Antonio and Bexar County will answer your questions live tonight.
