UPDATED Alameda County Health Order

The June 19, 2020 Alameda County health order now allows all retail, outdoor dining, outdoor fitness, limited religious and cultural services, outdoor museums, dog parks, and First Amendment events.

Still closed for now are bars, barbershops and salons, playgrounds, and pools. The continuing Shelter in Place Order maintains restrictions on movement and public and private gatherings, with all travel into or out of the County prohibited, unless essential.

The County is monitoring 5 indicators, and if movement continues to trend in the right direction, we can expect to see additional reopening restrictions lifted in 2-4 week intervals.
