    DALY CITY (KPIX) – Haircuts and in-gym workouts have been happening in San Mateo County for weeks, but the county has landed on the state’s COVID-19 watchlist, as the disease case rate in the county has hit 127 per 100,000 residents. At Black and Gold Barber Lounge, in Daly City, between temperature checks, sanitizing between clients, there’s now another looming worry – a second shutdown. “To have to shut down a second time, we don’t know if we’ll be able to bounce back from that,” said manager Kevin San Juan. If the COVID-19 rate stays higher than 100 cases per 100,000 for the next three days, the county moves from the watch list to the monitor list,...
    REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — San Mateo County has now been included in California’s monitoring list of counties requiring additional intervention to deal with surging coronavirus cases. The county’s inclusion means all Bay Area counties are on the targeted watch list. San Mateo County has been on the list for fewer than three days. The state has said counties on the watch list for three consecutive days will need to close indoor operations such as fitness centers, hair and nail salons, and places of worship and cultural ceremonies. As of Wednesday afternoon, the county has reported 5,306 COVID-19 cases and 118 deaths from the virus, according to the county’s COVID-19 dashboard.  
    San Mateo County finally joined its neighbors on the state’s coronavirus watch list Wednesday morning, meaning that the entire region is now under state watch. The county was the lone Bay Area holdout after San Francisco was added nearly two weeks ago, followed by Santa Cruz on Sunday. For days — as residents of other counties watched — residents could work out inside a gym or get an indoor haircut in San Mateo County, even as they were banned from doing so in all other Bay Area counties.. Now that’s poised to change. If the county remains on the list for three consecutive days, a slew of locations must shut down unless they can perform their work outside — including...
    San Mateo County now stands alone in the greater Bay Area, an island surrounded by others whose surging coronavirus cases landed them on California’s COVID-19 monitoring list that requires closure of everything from indoor classrooms, offices and shopping malls to gyms, churches, hair salons and barbershops. Not San Mateo County. As of Monday, you could still go inside for a haircut from East Palo Alto to Pacifica or even workout inside a fitness center in Redwood City. And for the moment, San Mateo County stands as the only place in the region that can welcome students back to classrooms without special permission. But there is little cause for celebration. Local officials and businesses expect they may land on the list...
    REDWOOD CITY (KPIX) — Business owners in San Mateo County were worried about having to close as they sat on the precipice of California’s coronavirus watch list. By state guidelines, that could have happened last Monday or Tuesday but it did not. It was great news for gym and salon owners in San Mateo County but it’s causing some frustration in the South Bay. “You know, either way with the virus and the pandemic, business has been rough,” says Taylor Martin, owner of The Weight Room in Redwood City. “But at least being open we have the opportunity to rebuttal.” When KPIX spoke with Martin last week, he was worried he would be closed again by now. Despite the still-bad...

    REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — San Mateo County’s Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday to extend the countywide moratorium on residential evictions from July 28 to Aug. 31. The temporary moratorium protects renters from eviction if they cannot pay rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also suspends evictions in certain no-fault cases. At the end of the moratorium, tenants have up to 180 days to pay the owed rent. Residents around the county are struggling to pay rent, due to the high cost of living in the Bay Area and the negative economic impact of the pandemic. San Mateo County’s unemployment rate was 10.8 percent this June, compared to 2.2 percent in June 2019, according to data from California’s...
    SAN MATEO COUNTY (CBS SF) – Amid concerns that San Mateo County could soon end up on the state’s COVID-19 watch list, the county’s health officer called out gatherings for contributing to higher transmission of the coronavirus. Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow said in a statement that many of the infections are related to fairly small gatherings of family and friends. “Birthday parties, picnics, eating at restaurants with mixed households, etc, without the basic precautions being taken. Most of these gatherings are innocent, no doubt, not intending to spread the virus, but they do spread it, and with far reaching implications,” he said. “Please note, your seemingly innocuous get togethers are driving the spread and are a major reason why...
    SANTA MATEO (KPIX) — A Peninsula lawmaker warns San Mateo County will make the state monitoring list by Tuesday or Wednesday, and could remain on the list for “forever” if people don’t change their behavior. “We could be in this watch list forever so if we don’t change our behaviors and if we don’t change our actions we could be in this forever,” said Supervisor David Canepa. “We really need people to wear their damn mask. Make no mistake about it, if we do not take action right now, the consequences are going to be catastrophic.” San Mateo County is the only Bay Area county that has not made the state’s watch list. Up until recently, it has been able...

    For months, San Mateo County has been a haven amid some of the most heavily infected counties in California, as it recorded a lower rate of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, earning the latest distinction of being the only place to get a haircut indoors, go to the gym or escape other restrictions in the Bay Area. Due in large part to its heavily suburban and affluent communities, the number of cases in the county had risen by just over 1,000 from 1036 to 2,304 from April 1 to June 1. That’s compared to nearby counties which have much higher figures: 5,305 in San Francisco and 7,795 in Santa Clara County. But since then the number of cases have risen to a...

    REDWOOD CITY (KPIX) — Among Bay Area counties fighting to reopen amid the deepening coronavirus pandemic, San Mateo has been holding steady while others have been sliding backward. That distinction may not last much longer and small business owners can hear the clock ticking. With coronavirus case numbers pushing the county toward the state watch list, a second shutdown is now looming for salon and gym owners. “I’ve been checking online and watching the news just to see if we’re going to close or not,” said Georgia Ponce of Eclipz Salon. Tayor Martin opened the Weight Room gym barely one year ago. “We’ve only been open since June 19 as of now. I think we’ve got about three weeks under...

    BURLINGAME (KPIX) — San Mateo County is on the verge of being put on California’s “watch list,” which could lead to the shutdown of hair and nail salons and houses of worship, among other indoor businesses, according to San Mateo supervisor David Canepa. “Today’s the first day, Friday’s the second day and they’ll probably shut us down on Saturday,” said Canepa, who noted that the leading indicator for watch list placement is the county’s numbers of new COVID-19 cases. “Out of 100,000, we’re at 124. The number to beat is to be below 100,” Canepa said. San Mateo and San Francisco counties are the only ones from the Bay Area not already on the watch list. Even if San Francisco...
    HALF MOON BAY (KPIX 5) — A battle is brewing on the San Mateo County coast over whether cities should close their beaches indefinitely because of the pandemic. This month, the beaches were closed for the 4th of July, but they’re open again, and that doesn’t make any sense to Half Moon Bay resident Brent Turner, who’s calling for a shutdown of city beaches in San Mateo County as soon as this weekend. “If we have to stop the party this weekend so be it, so that we avoid a super-spread situation,” Turner said. “If it goes on longer than that, so be it.” Turner supported the closure of beaches for 4th of July, but worries that busy beaches and...
    For the first time, the entire Bay Area could soon be on California’s coronavirus watch list — an ominous trend that can trigger new restrictions and business closures.

Santa Clara, San Mateo and San Francisco counties all recently crossed the closely watched threshold for new cases. Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Sonoma and Solano had all already topped it in recent weeks.   For weeks, the state’s major trouble spots were in Los Angeles and its neighboring counties in Southern California. As of Wednesday, 32...

    California’s beaches, when open, have provided residents a respite from the coronavirus-induced shelter-in-place orders. However, there are parts of the coastline that are better than others. If you’re planning a beach day, it might be best to avoid San Mateo County, where an “unprecedented” number of beaches appeared on the annual “Beach Bummer” list for 2020, which ranks the most polluted beaches in the state. Six of the 10 to make the list are in San Mateo County, with Fitzgerald Marine Reserve at San Vicente Creek Outlet just north of Half Moon Bay coming in the top spot — the first time it has appeared on the bummer list. More than half the beaches monitored in San Mateo County received...

    If this had been any other year, families would have been flocking this week to the 86th annual San Mateo County Fair for a day’s worth of high-flying carnival rides, midway games and food on a stick followed by a nighttime concert.
