AIGA San Antonio + COVID-19

To our San Antonio Creative Community:

AIGA SA’s Board has been closely following all COVID-19 developments. To ensure the health and safety of our San Antonio community and after careful consideration, we will be suspending all in-person programming until further notice. This includes our ¡SOMOS! Conference, which will be postponed until a later date. 

The Board is working to develop a plan for the next several months that could include virtual programming and engagement. To encourage creative communication, we will be relaunching our community Slack workspace this month. Stay tuned for a sign-up link on our social media channels. 

Stay informed about COVID-19 and take the necessary precautions to stay healthy and reduce risk. While there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, you can take the following steps to help stop the spread of this virus:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place. If soap and water are unavailable, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • If your employer allows it, consider working from home.
  • Practice social distancing; wherever possible, keep 6 feet between yourself and other people
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Stay updated with the latest information from the World Health Organization, The Centers for Disease Control, and the City of San Antonio.

Gracias! Take care and be safe!
