Health Officer Explains Your Role in the Future and Avoiding a Second Wave

Read the latest statement from San Mateo County Health Officer Scott Morrow, MD, MPH, MBA on June 15 where he shares his thoughts as we begin to loosen the Shelter in Place restrictions.

“You all are now the most important variable in how our future will develop. Follow the key behaviors well, including extensive use of facial coverings, and that will bode well for all of us. Don’t, and our future will be dim. As to a second wave in August, the existence of such a wave and its severity is entirely up to you. I believe we can completely avoid a second wave if everyone does their part,” says Dr. Morrow.
