In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Shelter at Home orders, the City of Morro Bay has established a phone hotline, as well as a grocery delivery service for those groups isolating themselves to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The hotline -- (805) 772-6278 -- is being operated by city staff and a local volunteer group called Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD). VOAD volunteers will be connected to those that need assistance and are willing to assist in any way they can, including pick-up and delivery of meals, groceries, household items and medications.

Through collaboration with the Morro Bay Cares program, the County of San Luis Obispo and the Food Bank of San Luis Obispo County, there is now a service that includes providing groceries for residents that must isolate themselves due to compromised immune systems. The groceries provided by the Food Bank will include dry goods, protein, and fresh produce and will be delivered by Morro Bay volunteers. The quantities will last one individual 3-7 days.

If you would like more information on any of these programs or other general information on Morro Bay programs and efforts to help curtail the spread of COVID-19, visit their information page at: http://www.morrobayca.gov/covid19.
