New hybrid format allows for in-person and virtual participation
You will soon be able to attend City Council meetings virtually or in-person – as long as you mask and either provide proof of vaccination or a verified negative test.
If you are feeling sick, public health guidelines strongly recommend that you stay home. The City Council asks that everyone follow those guidelines. When sick, you can still attend via computer or phone and participate in public comment.
The new hybrid format increases public participation and interaction with the City Council in an environment with strong COVID-19 protections.
Participate in Council Meetings in-person or virtually
Hybrid meetings will start May 10 and will become the new standard going forward.
For details on how and when to comment, see our Participating in City Council Meetings page. Those participating remotely will see little difference from the virtual meetings the Council has held since March of 2020.
You can also watch or listen to meetings in formats that don’t allow for public comment, such as:
Cable B-TV (Channel 33)
The move to in-person meetings is in line with the state and local health and safety guidelines for indoor events.
For questions about the hybrid meeting format, contact the City Clerk Department via email or call (510) 981-6900.
