Update on the City of Mountain View's Response to COVID-19

Updated: May 28, 2020 at 9:30 a.m.

The City continues to follow the guidance of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department in response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Based on the latest recommendations, we've modified the following programs, events and service deliveries. Please note that this is a fluid situation, and as new information arises, the City may make further adjustments. For more information, visit the City's COVID-19 resource page         

Cancelled Events

Out of an abundance of caution of limiting gatherings and doing our part to flatten the curve, the City of Mountain View has made the tough decision to cancel all summer special events including Thursday Night Live, Concerts on the Plaza, Kidstock, and the Summer Outdoor Movie Night Series. This decision was not made lightly, but we value your health and wellness. We thank you for doing your part to flatten the curve and we can’t wait to come back in Summer 2021 bigger and better than before. Stay well, Mountain View!

Essential Programs and Service Delivery

Essential services that will continue at this time include:

  • Second Harvest Food Bank Brown Bag Program at the Mountain View Senior Center will take place from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. on the 1st and 4th Tuesday of each month.
  • Senior Center Nutrition Program -Curbside pick-up of to-go boxed lunches will take place in the back of the Senior Center parking lot. Distribution will take place Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.


As of June 5, Santa Clara County and the State of California permitted public pools to open for limited programs. The City of Mountain View anticipate opening Eagle Park Pool beginning Saturday, June 20 for an expanded lap swim program, which includes an appointment system, limited indoor facility use and social distancing protocols. The appointment system and program details will be posted on this website beginning Tuesday, June 16. An email will also be sent to lap swim members and those enrolled in the City's Recreation eNewsletter.
