It has been reported that there are two positive cases of COVID-19 in the Town of Sunnyvale.

Please make sure you are abiding by Judge Jenkins' shelter-in-place order and that you are only leaving home to engage in essential activities or to report to an essential business. It is imperative that social distancing guidelines be followed both indoors and outdoors to further prevent the spread of this virus within the Sunnyvale community.

Know the symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

*Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

It is important to remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus.

Important tips to protect yourself and others:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially if you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with others who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in the trash as soon as possible. If a tissue is unavailable, use the inside of your elbow. Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, countertops, and light switches.
