Based on the major combat guidelines set by the São Paulo State Government, Sabesp is fully engaged to endure COVID-19 pandemic within its operation area, which means 374 municipalities located throughout São Paulo state and home to about 28 million people. Along with the increasing attention to maintaining the water supply, the Company's Board has established an executive committee to monitor internal and external scenarios and deploy strategic measures against coronavirus spread. Actions in progress are carried out on two fronts. One of them consists in mitigating negative economic impacts brought by the crisis. To this end, Sabesp exempted low-income customers from paying water and sewage bills. The measure benefits more than 2 million people across São Paulo State and is valid for three months (April, May and June).
