Hayward City Hall to be closed Fridays in January as a temporary COVID-19 response measure

January 6, 2022

Hayward City Hall will be closed to the public on Fridays through the month of January as an extra measure to help prevent workplace transmission of coronavirus while still maintaining telephone and online access and customer services.

On Fridays, members of the public seeking assistance from and information about Hayward city government services, programs and operations—including departmental contact information—are encouraged to visit the City’s official website at  Some departments will have in-person appointments available on Fridays upon request.

Callers also may contact the Office of the City Manager at (510) 583-4300.  Additionally, community members may report non-emergency safety issues and concerns by calling the Hayward Police Department non-emergency line at (510) 293-7000. 

The temporary Friday closures will allow the City to sustain minimum staffing levels necessary to maintain City Hall-based operations amid the omicron variant-driven surge in coronavirus infections in the Bay Area.  

Community members with additional questions or concerns may contact City of Hayward Public Information Officer Chuck Finnie by email at
