Further Restrictions in Place Due to Increase in COVID-19 Cases

Due to a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases throughout the State of California, 41 counties in California, including Alameda County, have been moved back to the Purple Tier - the most restrictive tier in the State's "Blueprint for a Safer Economy."  The City of Dublin has yet to hear whether the Alameda County Health Officer is planning to further restrict activities beyond what’s included in the State mandate.  Once that information is known, the City will share it with the public.

Sectors which will be allowed to continue operating indoors, with modifications, include:

  • Critical infrastructure
  • Hair salons and barbershops 
  • All retail with a maximum 25% occupancy
  • Shopping centers and malls with a maximum 25% occupancy; common areas and food courts must remain closed.
  • Personal Care Services, such as nail salons
  • Hotels and other lodging
  • Limited Services (e.g., laundromats, dry cleaners, auto repair, landscapers, janitorial, home repair, contractors, etc.)

Sectors which can remain open, but must operate outdoors, with modifications, include:  

  • Gatherings (with a maximum of three households participating). 
  • Outdoor playgrounds and recreational facilities
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Places of Worship 
  • Movie theaters 
  • Restaurants
  • Wineries 
  • Family Entertainment Centers (Kart Racing • Mini Golf • Batting Cages)
  • Cardrooms and Satellite Wagering

Sectors which must remain closed:

  • Bars, Breweries, and Distilleries (where no meal provided) 
  • Bowling Alleys, Ice Skating, Roller Skating, Arcades, Indoor Playgrounds
  • Amusement Parks
  • Live audience sports

To prevent further spread of COVID-19, residents are asked to avoid gathering with people outside of one's household; limit activities; and continue to wear masks or other face coverings when outside of the home.
