Updates and Response Information:


UPDATE AS OF: OCT. 20, 2020:

On Oct. 13, 2020 the State announced that Alameda County is in the Orange Tier of the color-coded four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy because it has met the State’s metrics for the Tier for at least two weeks. Reaching the Orange Tier is a result of decreasing case and positivity rates due, in large part, to the sacrifices made by the County’s residents and businesses, and their adherence to Health Officer Orders and guidance. We have collectively slowed the spread of COVID-19, and need to continue wearing face coverings, staying six feet away from each other, washing hands frequently and staying home when sick.  HEALTH ORDER

COVID-19 is the name of the novel coronavirus that is responsible for this outbreak. Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that typically cause mild respiratory infections like the common cold but also more severe (and potentially deadly) infections. They are zoonotic diseases, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.
