Three years after the COVID-19 health crisis sent the nation into emergency response, San Mateo County officials reflected on recovery efforts with hopes of learning from successful interventions to continue pushing for equitable improvements.

“There’s a lot of work that’s been done in the past three years but I want to emphasis that we took time during these three years to step back, reflect, think about what we were doing, learn from what we were doing and try to improve the programs going forward,” Deputy County Executive Officer Peggy Jensen said during Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting.

The only lesson we learned is that none of these unelected "officials" can be trusted and we must all think and do for ourselves from now on. The "science" has been forever politicized.


There's nothing here about housing and being able to social distance, finding hospital beds, PPE and quality masks and distributing it where needed, and why they were unavailable and why water and broadband became life and death issues or why the county never used federal recovery act money to insure those services were broadly available. This is pat on back rather than prep for the next event.
