Safety tips while we are walking in Town:
While we are happy to see many residents using their time at home to take walks in the community we want to encourage our walkers to follow some safety rules.
- When walking it is best to walk with traffic, especially in the absence of sidewalks. This will assist drivers and pedestrians in adhering to social distancing protocols.
- Be mindful of vehicular and bicycle traffic while on mobile devices.
Managing and coping with stress:
Managing and coping with stress during the SIP Order will be important for us all as we move forward under these ever-changing conditions. San Mateo County Health offers help to support the well-being of those coping with the outbreak. To get more information click here.
