Dear San Bruno Community,
 
First and foremost, thank you for all that you have done while sheltering in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  Now that we are in our ninth week of compliance with the San Mateo County Public Health order, I want to express my sincere gratitude.  The unpredictability and changes to what many refer to as our new norm can be challenging.  I have said it before, and will say it again, our community has demonstrated great resiliency in the past and will continue into the future.  Students have had to adapt to new schedules, many residents are now working from home, we have all adjusted our lives in order to protect one another. 
 
The new Shelter in Place order, which went into effect this past Monday, May 18, brings our county into alignment with the State of California Resilience Roadmap’s early stages of Phase 2.  Many restrictions and limitations continue on most activity, travel, and business functions.  However, additional businesses and activities are now considered permitted functions and allowable.  Social distancing measures and face covering requirements remain in effect and should be adhered to.
 
As we ease out of the tighter restrictions, it is important to remind ourselves that it is crucial for us to all mirror the recommendations of the Health Officer.  By doing so, we will slow the spread, reduce the possibility or risk of a future outbreak, and keep all of us healthy.
 
There are many great resources available to our community, and those in need.  If you need assistance or more information related to COVID-19, please visit the City of San Bruno website, sanbruno.ca.gov/Coronavirus or the San Mateo County website, smcgov.org/Coronavirus.  You can also call 2-1-1 for non-emergency and non-medical questions.
 
As we approach Memorial Day, I want to also remember all of the fallen heroes that gave their lives for our Country.  These are truly unprecedented times, and I encourage you to reflect on what is important to you as you spend time at home.  Please continue to do your part and remember, that we are all in this together. 
 
Be safe, stay healthy and stay strong.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
 
Rico E. Medina
Mayor
