If my job is impacted by state or federally mandated closures, will my landlord be able to evict me if I can't pay my rent?

Evictions are civil matters between landlord and tenant and are presided over by our local Justices of the Peace.  

General information for tenants, including eviction and foreclosure moratoriums can be found here: http://sanmarcostx.gov/3102/Info-for-Tenants-and-Homeowners

On Tuesday, April 7, the San Marcos City Council passed an ordinance requiring a landlord to provide a Notice of Proposed Eviction prior to issuing an actual Notice to Vacate. The San Marcos ordinance gives tenants a 90-day period to cure any delinquency as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
