"We have the authority within our metropolitan health district to protect the public if the state and Federal government does not," said San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

The mayor say it's because of a woman who tested positive for coronavirus "after" being released from the base. She was later returned to quarantine.

"The mayor's office takes the position we are dangerous to our own communities even thought the normal quarantine period and the CDC disagrees," said Saber.
