COVID-19 Safety

The Palo Alto Fire Department encourages the community to stay informed, practice good hygiene, be aware and be prepared.  As a community we are in this together; stay calm and help each other by staying home if you are sick, check in on your neighbors, and continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 by using best hygiene practices.
