Simitian holding telephone town hall Sunday

Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian is hosting a telephone town hall this weekend with U.S. Representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA-18) to answer questions about COVID-19 in our community.

Other guests on the call include:

  • Dr. Sara Cody, the County’s Public Health Officer,
  • Dr. Yvonne Maldonado, Chief of Infection Control at Stanford Hospital, and
  • Dr. Mark Adams, Chief Medical Officer at El Camino Hospital.

The event comes as Cody and other Bay Area health officials have extended the shelter-at-home orders through early May, and just days after announcing recommendations that residents wear face coverings when in public.

Eshoo will discuss the federal response to the novel coronavirus. Simitian will cover the Board’s actions to help provide relief to local businesses and families. Cody has been a central figure in the County’s response and its ongoing preparations for the expected surge of COVID-19 patients needing acute care in coming weeks.

The telephone town hall is Sunday, April 5 beginning at 11 a.m. To participate, call (855) 866-6313.
