COVID-19 Small Business Essential Items Bag Program

May 29, 2020.


Bexar County has launched of the “COVID-19 Essential Items Bag” program to support small businesses in the transition to “moderate risk” COVID-19 protocols. The program provides a free, one-week supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) to sole proprietors and businesses with less than 25 employees located in the suburban cities and unincorporated areas of the county. 
 
The ability for businesses to obtain and utilize personal protective equipment (touchless thermometers, facemasks, hand sanitizer, gloves and Plexiglas covering) to help protect their employees is critical in helping our community get back to work and stay at work. We hope that this program will jump-start the transition while businesses line up long-term supplies. 
 
Because COVID -19 Essential Items are being provided on a one-time basis, businesses are recommended to establish vendor relationships to allow them continued access to PPE going forward and to buy local where possible. A list of local PPE vendors can be found here.
 
This registration process will allow county staff to facilitate the pick up or delivery of the “COVID-19 Essential Items Bag.” Once completed, we will contact you within 24 hours to review your information.
