Both SAWS and CPS Energy have suspended energy disconnections as the pandemic continues to take its toll on residents and the economy.


As a result of the crisis, CPS Energy said it will not be paying out a bonus this year for employees.

Bexar County has 890 COVID-19 cases and 37 deaths, according to the city.

COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.
