To Our Parks Family, These last few weeks have left many of us reeling as we collectively mourn for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and too many others who have had their lives cut short. This, in the midst of a global pandemic that has kept us isolated at home cut off from people and parks for months. We are living through a difficult and pivotal moment in history and each of us is being called upon to bring our highest and best selves to the table to address these most pressing issues and injustices.
Thank you for continuing to do your part to keep parks safe and healthy for all. Please keep it up! Across the region, the vast majority of park and trail visitors have done so responsibly. In San Mateo County, we have an opportunity to make the parks welcoming, comforting and healing places to be and to share. The latest health order from San Mateo County Health Officer, Scott Morrow, was released on June 4. San Mateo County has made significant progress in slowing the spread of COVID-19. This has led to additional businesses being allowed to resume operations. San Mateo County Parks is also opening additional parks and facilities this month.
