COVID-19 Resources 

It is more important than ever for neighbors to help each other through these unprecedented times.  Accurate, actionable resources are the first step.

 

I have pulled together this list of COVID-19 resources based on the recommendations of our governments, local businesses and neighbors.  I hope it will be useful to you.  Please send recommendations to add to this list to lisa@lisaforsanmateo.com and feel free to share the list with anyone who can use it.

 

Thank you for staying safe, healthy, hopeful...and connected!
