City Hall is illuminated as part of awareness campaign for Covered California

San Francisco City Hall became the latest iconic building to be lit with the Covered California logo and colors Thursday night. This bright promotion is geared towards raising enrollment awareness for residents across the bay area and all of California. A lifeguard tower in the Central Coast was also lit with the Covered California spotlights.

The statewide bus tour and spotlight campaign is intended to raise public awareness about the opportunity for all eligible Californians to get health coverage during open enrollment, which will be from November through Jan. 31, 2016. This lighting installation is part of a 10 day, 29 city, statewide bus tour of hospitals, clinics, and storefronts.
