During this time, no one can stand silent. Let us be clear and direct about where the City of Pleasanton stands: the killing of George Floyd is reprehensible. With others, we grieve for George Floyd, for his family and friends, and the community. We call upon all cities to stand up to blatant acts of racism in our society and our institutions.
The City of Pleasanton supports the ideals and goals of demonstrators who have come together in recent days to assemble peaceably to educate and advocate and who seek justice in our world. We will protect First Amendment rights that allow freedom of speech and peaceful protests. We will also protect our residents and businesses who have invested so much in Pleasanton and will safeguard our community from those using violence to distract from the critical message of this moment.
Leadership calls out broken systems and works to fix them. Leadership says we see you and we hear you. We encourage constructive dialogue and genuine engagement through our interactions with one another to decide together how we – as a community – make our city a better place. Let us work together to find meaningful ways to honor the life of George Floyd, and let that collective work reflect the community we strive to be.
The City of Pleasanton and our police department stand with you.
Pleasanton Mayor and Council
Pleasanton City Manager

For Pleasanton Unified School District Families, here is the latest information from the school district regarding COVID-19: PUSD COVID-19 Update Page.
Novel coronavirus COVID-19 is a virus strain that originated in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China that has spread among humans since Dec. 2019. Coronaviruses usually cause mild respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold. Some coronaviruses have caused more severe illness, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
COVID-19 primarily spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes releasing droplets which can travel up to 6 feet. Another person can become infected if these droplets enter their mouth, nose, or eyes directly or through their contaminated hands. An infected person who coughs or sneezes into their hands and touches surfaces such as phones, tables, door handles, or toys can contaminate them.
Call ahead to a healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
We recognize that public health emergencies, such as the Coronavirus 19 outbreak can be stressful for residents and our community, and lead to social stigma and discrimination by associating a disease to a population or nationality, even though not everyone in that population is at risk. A disease like the Coronavirus 19 can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity.
