LiveWire – April 2020

Brian Dossey, City Manager

As we enter our third week of the shelter in place order from Governor Newsom I want to take a minute to thank everyone in the community for doing their part to remain safe and protect one another.  I know these are unprecedented times and I want to assure you that all Colma staff are doing everything we can to keep you updated on COVID-19 as well as looking out for our seniors and populations in need.  If we all work together and practice social distancing, hand washing, not touching your face, and only going out for essential supplies and services, we’ll all get through this difficult time.

As I mentioned, we are doing all we can to help seniors and populations in need.  If you need assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at Town Hall, 650-997-8300, we have members of our C.A.P.E team ready to volunteer and assist those for acquiring groceries, prescription medicine, personal care products, etc.  We can even put you in touch with one of our volunteers if you are feeling lonely or isolated and would just like to talk to someone.  We know this is a difficult time. If you need support, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a national Disaster Distress Helpline for crisis counseling. Call 1-800-985-5990, 24/7 for toll-free, multilingual crisis support services.  Also, If you need emergency assistance please contact the Colma Police Department at 9-1-1.

Also, please remember that the Colma Police Department is in full operation and the Officers are out in the community protecting our Town.  If you see them out and about, please give them a wave and thank them for their service.  Without our first responders we would not be able to protect our community, keeping everyone safe.

Even though Town Hall is closed to the public, we are here and ready to serve you.  Please do not hesitate to contact Town Hall at 650-997-8300 or me directly at 650-997-8318 or  Below is a list of social media and weblinks so you can stay informed on COVID-19. You may also contact the county at 2-1-1 for non-medical related questions. Please be safe and take care, together we will get through this.
