Coronavirus

San Francisco has zero confirmed cases of novel coronavirus. If a San Francisco case is confirmed, the Health Department will make an announcement, in cooperation with CDC and California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

Residents of the Bay Area are at low risk of becoming infected with this new coronavirus, unless they have recently traveled to Wuhan or have come in close contact with someone who was ill who recently traveled in that area.

Do I need to wear a mask or cancel my social activities? There is no recommendation to wear masks or cancel your activities at this time. The best way to protect your health is by practicing preventive measures such has consistent handwashing and getting a flu shot to help prevent illness and symptoms similar to the novel coronavirus. Anyone who has recently been to Wuhan and develops a fever and lower respiratory symptoms, such as a cough or shortness of breath, should first call their doctor or health care provider and share their travel history before visiting.

For the most updated information, please visit www.sfdph.org or www.sf72.org.

Alemany/US101 Deck Closure - Public Workshop Dates

During the summer of 2020, Caltrans plans to demolish and replace the deck of U.S. 101 at Alemany Circle. Alemany Circle sits just north of the U.S. 101 and 1-280 interchange in San Francisco. The project will have significant impact on local and regional traffic for approximately 3-weeks. Lane capacity will be reduced for safety and to save lives, a 35 mile per hour (mph) speed limit will be strongly enforced at all project detours. Traffic will be detoured through Alemany to an off and on ramp with major delays during peak commute hours.

SFMTA

https://www.sfmta.com/reports/bayview-cbtp-draft-plan

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 Christopher.Kidd@sfmta.com.

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