But at least a dozen San Antonio bars are taking it upon themselves to close their doors until further notice.
Spots all over the city, including Coco Loco Sports Bar, The Well and newly-opened Chicken N Pickle told patrons on social media that they want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem, when it comes to the pandemic. Some said the decision came after employees tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Everybody here ... wants to stay ahead of this, so even though nobody here has tested positive for coronavirus, we will all be going to get tested,” read a Brooks Pub Facebook post. “That unfortunately means we will be closing until further notice, starting at 7 p.m. today. We hope to open back up soon.”
While the list below isn't comprehensive, we did check the social media feed of each for confirmation.
