I just heard that my test was negative. I will remain quarantined, per public health guidance.— Mayor Ron | Wear a mask! 😷 (@Ron_Nirenberg) November 11, 2020
Please remember that there are San Antonians fighting this disease as you read this. Honor them, those we've lost & their families by taking every precaution as cases rise.
Thank you. https://t.co/IY1W3fDGqG
Nirenberg's potential exposure came less than a week after Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff also entered self-quarantine following contact with a county employee who tested positive for COVID-19. The judge's test also came back negative.
