SAN ANTONIO (July 18, 2020) — City Manager Erik Walsh released the following statement regarding the passing of two City of San Antonio civilian employees to complications of COVID-19.
“Today, it’s with sadness that I share that we are grieving the loss of two of our own City of San Antonio teammates. Please join me in keeping their loved ones in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time. This pandemic has tested our City’s resolve over the last few months but today, it hit especially close to home. Let’s all do our part to protect our frontline workers by staying home when possible or wearing a mask and social distancing when you can’t. Lives are depending on you.”
One of the employees was a San Antonio Fire Department Mechanic with 29 years of service and the other was an Alamodome Temporary Security Guard who worked seasonally since 2006.
