Thank you Los Gatos.  All of you have stepped up in so many different ways to help the most vulnerable among us. Whether it is delivering a meal to those who need it, contributing to a Go Fund Me page for workers now without a paycheck, or simply providing support and encouragement in a difficult time, Los Gatos residents have been there for each other. If you’re looking for an opportunity to chip in, please check the Town’s dedicated COVID-19 page for a list of organizations that need your support.

And remember, as we begin the second week in a new world of sheltering at home and social distancing, it is more important than ever to follow the County Health Guidelines. In spite of our efforts thus far, confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to go up. Please do everything you can to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is hard to be without our friends and routines - and increasingly social get-togethers, a group run or bike ride, or even that trip to the salon - start to seem more and more “essential.” It isn’t easy, but continuing to maintain safe distances is critically important in helping to slow the virus’s spread so that our hospitals and healthcare workers have the capacity to provide care for those who need it most. If you have a question about what you can and can’t do, please check the County Health FAQs where you can submit your own questions and find the answers you need.

Let’s continue to support each other so we can all stay healthy.

Los Gatos Mayor
