Due to the high amount of community events and announcements, we send a separate events and announcements newsletter which will include a broader scope of annoucements. If you have any announcements that you would like to include, please email

Coronavirus/COVID-10 Preparedness Alert


At the time of this newsletter, San Francisco has 2 confirmed cases of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. The two patients are unrelated and both are being cared for at separate hospitals. The patients do not have a history of travel to a location with confirmed COVID-19 cases, and have no known contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 case. These cases are likely indicative of community transmission of COVID-19.

On Thursday, March 5, Lowell High School decided to close the school and all events and gatherings for the time being out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of the community due to a student related to one of the patients being treated for COVID-19 in San Francisco.

The best way for all San Franciscans to reduce their risk of getting sick, as with seasonal colds or the flu, still applies to prevent COVID-19:
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
  • Cover your cough or sneeze;
  • Stay home if you are sick;
  • Get your flu shot to protect against flu or symptoms similar to COVID-19;
  • Try alternatives to shaking hands, like an elbow bump or wave; and
  • If you have recently returned from a country with ongoing COVID-19 infections, monitor your health and follow the instructions of public health officials.
There is no recommendation to wear masks at this time to prevent yourself from getting sick. You can also prepare for the possible disruption caused by an outbreak:
  • Make sure you have a supply of all essential medications for your family;
  • Make a child care plan if you or a caregiver are sick;
  • Make arrangements about how your family will manage a school closure; and
  • Make a plan for how you can care for a sick family member without getting sick yourself.
COVID-19 does not discriminate on race, ethnicity, class, gender or sex, and it is important that we do not either. 

Governor Newsom has declared an emergency for the State of California for COVID-19 and the California Department of Insurance and the California Department of Manage Health Care has announce to immediately eliminate cost-sharing, including but not limited to co-pays, deductibles, and coinsurance, for medically necessary screening and testing for COVID-19 and associated hospital, emergency department, urgent care, and provide office visits where the purpose of the visit is to be screened and/or texted for COVID-19. If you have problems accessing care for COVID-19 under your health insurance policy, you may contact the CA Department of Insurance's Consumer Hotline at 1-800-927-4357 or visit

The status of COVID-19 in San Francisco and the region is rapidly evolving. Please check the following online resources or call 3-1-1 for guidance regarding COVID-19 public heath safety information:

    The SFMTA is excited to share the draft plan for the Bayview Community Based Transportation Plan (Bayview CBTP). This plan is meant to direct $3.6 million in new transportation investments for the Bayview that was identified, developed, and prioritized entirely by residents. The Bayview CBTP team spent more than a year interacting with more than 4,000 Bayview residents on how the SFMTA can directly respond to their challenges, needs, and values. The draft plan is scheduled to be considered for adoption by the SFMTA Board this month. If you would like the Bayview CBTP team to present the draft plan to your community group or meeting, or would like to provide your input on the draft plan, contact Christopher Kidd at the SFMTA at

    MTA also created an additional survey for residents to give direct input on the Draft Plan itself.
