 ugust 10, 2021—In San Antonio, District Court Judge Antonia Arteaga granted a temporary
restraining order to halt Governor Greg Abbott’s May 18, 2021 executive order prohibiting local officials from mandating masks for Texas residents. Arteaga made the decision after hearing arguments from Bexar County leaders who expressed concerns over growing COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. Immediately following the ruling, San Antonio City Manager Erik

Walsh and San Antonio Metropolitan Health District Medical Director Junda Woo announced that masks will be required inside Bexar County public schools and San Antonio city buildings.
The case is expected to remain under legal review for some time. For now, NEISD plans to provide masks as needed. Updates will be posted on the district web site as the case progresses through the court system. The state of Texas did not fund virtual learning for the 2021-2022 school year, so
no online options will be offered. However, NEISD is currently working on a plan to offer exceptions for immunocompromised students.
Each classroom will offer hand sanitizer upon entry, and bathrooms will be fully stocked with soap and paper towels. School campuses will be sanitized frequently, especially high-touch areas. Additionally, HVAC systems will be purged daily and run with the maximum allowable amount of outside air and anti-microbial filtration.
NEISD officials are asking caregivers and students to monitor personal health for any symptoms of illness, including COVID-19. Students who become ill will receive packets to work from home and have access to virtual tutoring in math, science, social studies and English.
