Bay Area coronavirus updates | Mon., Apr. 13

The latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Monday afternoon include:

  • The Concord City Council on Tuesday will consider slashing its own members’ pay by 10 percent, in recognition of an already challenging city financial outlook made worse by the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on area businesses and households.
  • The Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation has been chosen as a lead partner supporting a new regional “COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund” to help Bay Area residents adversely impacted by fallout from the novel coronavirus. The Rapid Response Fund is supporting four key areas – food distribution, financial assistance, shelter and emergency housing and support for essential workers.
  • The annual Easter Sunrise Service at the historic Mt. Davidson Landmark Park and Cross in San Francisco was canceled this year due to the novel coronavirus shelter-in-place order, the first cancellation since the tradition was established in 1923.
