SAN ANTONIO – After having been hospitalized for COVID-19, San Antonio District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry said he is now “feeling much better” and is recovering from COVID-19 at home, according to his newsletter.

Councilman Perry said he had been hospitalized with the virus but now, he is on the mend. His full statement can be read below:

“As many of you know, I was recently hospitalized with COVID-19. Thankfully, I am feeling much better and recovering from this illness at home. The District 10 Team shared all of your well wishes with me, and I want each of you to know that your kind words and offers to help meant the world to me. While the vaccine has shone a light at the end of the tunnel, it’s important to remember that the pandemic is still ongoing. It is important to not let your guard down, even among close friends and family. We must stay vigilant, wear masks, wash your hands, and practice social distancing when possible.
