These are uncertain times, to say the least, and we must all turn to each other now and support our neighbors, friends, co-workers, and families. Seven counties in the Bay Area have issued a "shelter in place" order that is expected to last for at least three weeks. Residents are required to stay at home except for essential needs.
All Town facilities are closed indefinitely to the public, but you may request an appointment by phone for certain departments. For a non-emergency Police matter you may call 650-997-8321. To reach Town Hall, call 650-997-8300. To request an appointment for essential business only for the Building, Engineering, Planning and Public Works Department, please call 650-757-8888. All Recreation classes, programs and facility rentals have been cancelled through May, if you have questions please call the Community Center at 650-985-5678.
During this difficult and stressful time, the Town of Colma wants to reiterate that we are actively communicating with San Mateo County to ensure we are following the shelter in place order. Below are some resources from the county and general information on the steps the Town has taken to address COVID-19.
**Additionally, we've created a list of open businesses in Colma and we will update if there are any changes. Please keep in mind that some businesses can close without much notice due to the outbreak of COVID-19.**
