May 5, 2020 City of Fremont Update in Response to COVID-19

Covid update text

Today’s City of Fremont update highlights a new online donation portal and updates to the City’s Drive Slowly, Be Healthy Campaign.

Online Donation Portal Launches during Giving Tuesday Now


The City of Fremont is thankful for the generous offers of support we are receiving from community members during these unprecedented times. Today, May 5 is Giving Tuesday Now and we’re launching an online portal to make supporting the City’s efforts easier. The City provides a variety of services to help protect our community from the coronavirus and prepare for a safe and vibrant return to many daily life activities when it’s possible. Your support will help the City provide services to our neighbors, local businesses, and those in need during this pandemic. Your donation is tax deductible. View our online portal.


Drive Slowly, Be Healthy Campaign


The City of Fremont has launched a “Drive Slowly, Be Healthy” campaign which consists of comprehensive measures to manage traffic speeds for safety during the Coronavirus pandemic and beyond. The campaign includes advisory speeds on neighborhood streets to ensure safety when community members are out walking, biking, and practicing social/physical distancing, as well as measures to address the potential for speeding on arterial roadways during a time of reduced traffic.

The City of Fremont is advising the community to drive 20 mph on neighborhood residential streets during the current Shelter in Place Order issued by the Alameda County Public Health Department and to be extra alert for people walking and bicycling. To help communicate the 20 mph advisory speed, the City is partnering with its Mobility Commission, Bike Fremont, and autonomous technology company Pony.ai to create and distribute yard signs to promote safe speeds on neighborhood streets.

To request a yard sign(s) delivered to your yard by a Pony.ai autonomous vehicle, please send an email. You can also visit CentriPedal Bikes and Bike Garage to pick up the sign of your choice. Please visit our webpage for more information. Also, be sure to check out our “Drive Slowly, Be Healthy” music video featuring Fremont’s Mobility Commission. Stay safe!
