County of San Diego logoA limited number of people can attend and provide public comment in person at the San Diego County Board of Supervisors meetings next week as long as certain COVID-19 safety measures are followed.

The Board meetings take place Tuesday, May 18 and Wednesday, May 19. COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines cap the number of public participants in the Board Chamber at a time to 22 people.

Overflow rooms will be available, but due to limited capacity, the Clerk of the Board strongly urges the public to watch the meetings live online and make a request to speak via teleconference or submit a written eComment.

Members of the public must follow the safety guidelines below to attend the Board meeting in person.

  • Wear a face covering at all times except when speaking at the podium
  • Follow physical distancing rules
  • Undergo a security screening, a temperature check and answer standard COVID-19 screening questions when entering the County Administration Center
  • Wait outside the building if the maximum capacity is reached inside the Board Chamber and overflow rooms until space becomes available
