As of immediately, we are cancelling all our city-run programming (classes, sports, etc.). This is being done based on the current information being provided by the county and state and in the interest of public safety. We hope to return to full programming as soon as conditions permit. Thank you for your understanding. For more information about the City's COVID-19 response, please visit: www.san-marcos.net/covid19.
