‘Shelter in place’ order for Bay Area will save lives, stop spread of deadly COVID-19 virus

As fears grow over Coronavirus, we must take personal responsibility to limit its spread

DALY CITY – San Mateo County Supervisor David J. Canepa made the following statement today after six Bay Area counties ordered a shelter in place for all residents.

“If we want to save lives and stop the spread of this deadly virus, we must stay home and limit our interactions with others,” Canepa said. “Short of a complete lockdown, this is absolutely the best response we can take during this health care crisis. We must be an example to the rest of the country and world that with ingenuity and compassion we can defeat this virus. The public health order Mayor London Breed announced for San Francisco applies to residents of San Mateo County and the rest of the Bay Area. We must shelter in place. The time now is to not to panic.”

San Mateo County Supervisor David J. Canepa serves District 5 which includes the cities of Daly City, Colma, Brisbane, portions of South San Francisco and San Bruno and the unincorporated Broadmoor Village.
