As the state reopens California’s economy today (June 15), the city of Mountain View is moving forward with a phased reopening of its facilities over the coming months.
Mountain View’s agenda allows more time to scale up in-person services in accordance with state and Santa Clara County guidelines while continuing to provide support services related to the pandemic.
In alignment with public health guidance, the city will require the use of face coverings inside city facilities for visitors who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19.
Following is a summary of reopening plans.
