The City has made the decision to extend the closure of City facilities through September 30th.  Even though our buildings are closed to the public, you can still conduct most City business by phone, email and limited appointments.  You can also continue to participate virtually in City Council meetings and other City meetings. For more information about what this means for each department and facility, please visit:

 While the numbers of daily hospitalizations and deaths in Los Angeles County are declining, the County has urged us to continue what we've been doing to slow the spread of the virus.  This includes wearing a face covering, maintaining physical distancing, washing your hands, and not gathering with those outside of your household. All of these actions will help those numbers remain low enough to continue our recovery journey.

Thank you for your patience and understanding with the closure of our City buildings and for continuing to help keep our community safe!

This week, we are excited to introduce a new COVID-19 Dashboard that can be found on our City website:  The SALUS COVID-19 Dashboard was created by the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) at Pepperdine University's School of Public Policy to provide Los Angeles County residents with an overview of how COVID-19 is affecting communities and the County as a whole.  The interactive dashboard shows COVID-19 data at the County and City level, including information specific to San Marino.

Yesterday a new Health Officer Order was issued by the LA County Department of Public Health.  The revised order clarifies information about elementary school waivers, and provided updates to operations of childcare facilities and institutes of higher education.  If you have questions about the reopening of San Marino Schools, please contact the District directly at 626-299-7000.  To read the full Health Officer Order, click here:

Youth Sports Reopening Protocols
Yesterday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued reopening protocols for youth sports programs.  This includes recreational youth sports leagues, club sports, travel sports, and sports sponsored by public and private schools for grades TK – 12.   Adult amateur team sports are still not permitted.  Youth sports are only allowed outdoors, and tournaments, events, and competitions are not allowed.  For sports that require closer contact, only conditioning and skill building are permitted.

Slow the Spread of COVID-19
We urge everyone to continue to do their part to keep themselves, their families, and our community safe.   Even if you feel healthy, you can still spread the virus and cause others to get sick.  You can prevent this by avoiding gatherings with those outside of your household, wearing a face covering, maintaining physical distance, and washing your hands frequently and thoroughly. 
 Our Resident Support Hotline is still open and can be reached at 626-300-0731.  Please don’t hesitate to call if you or someone you know needs assistance.
