The San Mateo County Health Officer, in conjunction with the Bay Area County Health Officers, has extended the Shelter-in-Place Order through May 3, 2020 in order to slow the COVID-19 pandemic. Amid this health crisis, First 5 San Mateo County (F5SMC) is continuing to work remotely so that its Strategic Plan for 2020 – 2025 will be implemented as scheduled.  F5SMC, along with our community partners, are working together to provide needed services for our front line workers and our community.  Click below for COVID-19 Resource information and follow us on social media.
