Reminder from the City of Palo Alto

Reminder, Palo Alto has activated a Community Support Call Center from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday to help connect the public with information about coronavirus. We used the emergency alert system to inform the community about this new information tool but have been told that the alert system cut off part of the message. Please only call the Support Call Center at (650) 272–3181 to ask about city services and coronavirus related questions.

Please also help keep our Police resources available for emergencies by only calling 911 for emergencies. Non-emergency Police requests should call (650) 329–2413. The City is encouraging everyone to stay calm, be healthy and stay at home as much as possible to help reinforce social distancing. Follow our updates at
