Shelter in Place Order

If you live in San Mateo, San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz, or Marin County, you are under a legal order to shelter in place. Stay home, except to do essential activities like get groceries, pick up medications, or go to the doctor. 

What can I do? What can’t I do? What if I have to pick up medicine or check on a family member? Can I go for a walk? San Mateo County has posted answers to these and much more:

What To Do if You Think You’ve Been Exposed

Call your health provider immediately if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms such as cough and difficulty breathing.

If you are experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911.

See if you qualify for free COVID-19 testing.
