COVID-19 Updates and Resources

COVID-19 Updates and Resources

The ongoing spread of COVID-19 has created an environment of uncertainty that is unprecedented in our region. We know many of you have been deeply affected by this pandemic, not to mention the concern many of you feel for your workforce and families.

As the voice of Downtown, we are happy to be a resource for our members and business community as they navigate implications to their own organizations, an essential service to our community keeping Downtown’s neighborhoods clean and safe, and a champion for the needs of our diverse neighborhoods.

In accordance with directive from health authorities, all DSDP events and meetings will either be postponed or conducted digitally until further notice. We appreciate your patience as we navigate any changes to our event scheduling, meetings and services through the Clean & Safe program to accommodate recommendations and requirements from the appropriate public health officials.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Downtown San Diego Partnership at 619.234.0201 and we will direct you to the appropriate information. To request Clean & Safe services in Downtown, call 619.234.8900 or text 619.414.2698. For homeless outreach services including the Family Reunification Program, call 619.501.9520.
