Due to a rise in COVID-19 cases throughout Alameda County and the State of California, the County Health Officer has issued a pause on further openings and activities, and anticipates moving back into a more restrictive tier, based on the State's "Blueprint for a Safer Economy."
In recent weeks, the County has seen a steady climb in new COVID-19 cases reported, as well as COVID-19 hospitalizations. The County's daily new cases per 100,000 people has risen from a low of 3.4 to 4.9. If the current trend continues, Alameda County will move back into the Red Tier, and quite possibly, the very restrictive Purple Tier.
With the holiday season approaching, and people gathering indoors, the County urges residents to be extra cautious and to wear face coverings whenever leaving home. Other recommendations are to stay at least six feet away from people outside of one's household, and to continue to wash hands frequently.
