The world is a very different place than it was just a very short month ago when we sent out the last edition of Currents, and for most of us, #stayathome orders have drastically changed our work, school and social routines. While it is not exactly business as usual at the Port of Redwood City, we are an essential service under the Maritime Transportation category. Our maritime cargo operations continue their critical work for our region with our administrative offices minimally staffed as well as closed to the public. All public facilities are closed to encourage shelter-in-place compliance.
In the not so distant future, social distancing will be behind us, and we will once again be able to focus on living harmoniously along the waterfront with maritime and recreation sharing space with flora and fauna, sometimes even within six feet of each other.
