Health Expert Joins Effort To Ensure Fiesta 2021 Can Be Held Safely

Organizers have announced they are looking at how Fiesta might be held this year.

Fiesta San Antonio Commission announced they will be working with Dr. Martin “Marty” Makary to determine what could safely be held during the pandemic. Dr. Makary is a professor of health policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, a professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an expert on public health policy. He has assisted H-E-B and the San Antonio Spurs with their decision making to address COVID-19 related issues.

Dr. Makary says, “Fiesta is an important community tradition. The safety of attendees, volunteers and staff are an important pre-requisite.”

“The Commission certainly advocates for safe and responsible behavior as outlined by Metro Health, CDC, City of San Antonio and Bexar County. If we work together, now, to successfully implement COVID-19 safety protocols, i.e., mask wearing, social distancing, etc., we believe Fiesta events will occur in 2021," said Fiesta San Antonio Commission President, Baltazar (Walter) Serna.
