Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting Executive Orders issued by Governor Newsom regarding procedures for transparency and participation by members of the public at public meetings, state and local legislative bodies have been provided flexibility from certain Brown Act requirements. Specifically, the Executive Orders allow agencies to hold public meetings telephonically or otherwise electronically, and waived requirements for the physical presence of members in order to participate or establish a quorum. Meetings held electronically must allow members of the public to observe and address the meeting electronically. These flexibilities for the Brown Act remain in place while public health officials have imposed social distancing measures.
