The latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Friday afternoon include:
With the annual Walnut Creek Community Service Day having become yet another casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of that event have pivoted, and are now holding an expanded Community Food Drive this Saturday at several locations in the city.

A food drive has always been part of Community Service Day, which was to have marked its 10th year with 40 to 50 various projects around the city.

In the past few years, between 1,200 and 1,500 people turned out 
on the appointed day, which would have been this Saturday.

But Cindy Darling, a spokeswoman for Community Service Day, said the decision was made early in the planning stages this year that the various projects couldn't proceed as usual.

"As we were doing the early planning, we realized we couldn't do 
most of it in a way that is safe," Darling said. 

So the food drive element of the event was expanded this year, 
meeting an expanding need.
As of Friday, at 5:30 p.m., officials have confirmed the following
