The city of Los Altos not only continues to provide essential services during the coronavirus crisis, officials also are looking to boost morale.
City officials designed a webpage with the aim of serving as a clearinghouse for a variety of positive-thinking campaigns. The site is available at losaltosca.gov/citymanager/page/community-morale.
“There are many different campaigns, such as Kindness Rocks, that we will be promoting in the near future, and we will be using this page and others to promote these campaigns,” said city representative Trevor Marsden.
City officials also plan to address the “cabin fever” problem afflicting residents sheltering in place by offering an online page with a wide range of activities. The page includes educational, entertainment and fitness-oriented options.
Educational activities include renting e-books using the Santa Clara County Online Library and accessing the material available on the Khan Academy website.
Entertainment suggestions include access to live cams at the San Diego Zoo and Monterey Bay Aquarium, along with virtual tours of various museums.
For fitness, the city site features several links to routines on YouTube. It also lists a variety of open-space options in and around Los Altos where residents can go to exercise and catch some fresh air.
