COVID-19 telephone town hall Sunday

Continuing his monthly series of events, Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian is hosting another telephone town hall Sunday.

The event, set for 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 19, will discuss the status of COVID-19 response in the county. It follows similar events in April, May, and June.

The call comes as Santa Clara County has entered a new risk-reduction-oriented health order, while the virus continues to spread. It was implemented two days before the state closed a number of industries, leading to business backlash.

As per his other events, local health and legal officials will join Simitian on the call.

  • Dr. Jennifer Tong, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center
  • Tony LoPresti, Assistant County Counsel for Santa Clara County

Santa Clara’s number of COVID-19 hospitalizations has climbed in recent weeks, while case numbers are still rising.
