> Dear Jennifer,
>
> I hope you are well today. I hope you are safe and sheltered in place. If you are going to work as an essential worker, thank you for your service. Our park rangers have been dutifully keeping the parks open as best they can during these uncertain times. Next time you see a park ranger, please thank them for their service.
>
> Our parks are more important than ever, offering fresh air, sunshine (some rain) and the opportunity to stretch our legs. You and I both know that parks are good for our mental, physical and emotional well-being.
>
> Many people seemed to realize this over the weekend and flocked to the parks and beaches. This has the potential to defeat the purpose of the shelter in place order.
>
> In order to keep our parks open, we encourage people to remember <https://supportparks.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=77cc1bf16b0e42b90ab2ea6eb&id=c69157fe3e&e=2a161eab6c> the following:

> In an abundance of caution, San Mateo County has closed some parks and facilities, like restrooms and playgrounds. Here is the latest from San Mateo County Parks <https://supportparks.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=77cc1bf16b0e42b90ab2ea6eb&id=742bcabb5f&e=2a161eab6c> on what is open and what is closed as of this past weekend. This will likely change again, so please check back.
>
> Everyone is encouraged to shelter in place as much as possible, and if you need to stretch your legs, utilize your neighborhood park. Here is the latest statement <https://supportparks.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=77cc1bf16b0e42b90ab2ea6eb&id=d6c817d7ad&e=2a161eab6c> from San Mateo County's Health Officer, Scott Morrow. If you choose to drive to a park, please choose a less-visited park and respect 6 feet of social-distancing when you see other hikers.
>
> To help you feel closer to the parks, I have pulled together a few resources for you:
