San Mateo County Health is working closely with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to the outbreak of novel coronavirus in China and its potential impacts on the Bay Area. The CDC is leading the national public health effort to investigate the disease and to prevent its spread.
