A group of Trump supporters in Texas came out to the Alamo Friday night in defiance of a COVID-19 curfew put in place by the mayor of San Antonio. The group chanted “fine me!” to the city’s mayor, who put a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew in place. The order bans any social activity including congregating “in any area outside of an individual’s household.”
According to Mayor Nirenberg, this curfew includes residents limiting social gatherings even outside backyard homes. However, this does not mean residents could not get meals delivered or curbside and takeout services during this curfew but are encouraging restaurant owners to limit dining in entirely until the curfew ends and move instead to curbside or takeout options, NEWS4SA reported.
"While most restaurants are doing a great job, and I repeat: a great job, with the cooperation of their patrons following the governor's order, there is no getting around the fact that removing your mask while indoors allows the virus to spread and that is the danger point," Mayor Nirenberg said.
