Councilmember Ned Fluet
Dear Neighbor, 

I hope you are doing well. Here are a few updates from the county and town. 

COVID-19 Update

This week, we marked the one-year anniversary of the first reported case of COVID-19 in San Mateo County. It has been a profoundly difficult year but our town has come together and persevered. Vaccines have given us new hope and optimism but please continue to practice all of the safety precautions.

As of March 4, over 164,000 San Mateo County residents have been vaccinated and COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to fall. COVID-19 vaccine supply remains limited but you can sign up for the County’s notification tool to receive a notification when the State makes you eligible and information about how you may get an appointment.  You can also sign up for the State's notification tool here. Please also continue to consult with and contact your health care provider for updates.

County data regarding vaccinations, hospitalizations, and cases can be found here.

The Town is currently accepting applications from Woodside residents to fill a planning commissioner vacancy for District 4. A map of District 4 can be found here.
