TOWN OF DANVILLE UPDATE: New Health Order Updates Face Coverings/Indoor Gatherings



New Health Order Updates Face Coverings/Indoor Gatherings

Due to the continued rise of new cases of COVID-19 in Contra Costa County, the Contra Costa Health Director has issued an update to the Shelter in Place order affecting indoor activities and enhancing the use of facial coverings.

According to the latest data, 8.04% of COVID-19 tests administered over the past seven days came back positive. Under the variance received by the county from the State of California allowing for the reopening of many businesses, the 8% rate of positive results could trigger a review of the variance.

As a result, new guidelines are being issued. Beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 12, 2020, indoor worship services will be temporarily prohibited. Outdoor activities, such as worship services or social protesting are still allowed but participants must follow health guidelines for facial coverings and social distancing.

Outdoor dining is still allowed, however under the new guidelines, patrons must keep their facial coverings on at all times, with the exception of when they are eating or drinking. Masks should be worn when ordering, waiting for food, etc. The new order also provides additional guidance to businesses that serve alcohol with meals.

Extended family social bubbles may continue to meet but, similarly, must use face coverings with the exception of when they are eating or drinking.

The community is encouraged to follow these guidelines to assist with reducing the number of positive cases being seen in Contra Costa County and prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Further information on the health order can be found at www.coronavirus.cchealth.org.

TOWN UPDATE JULY 7 - UPDATED COUNTY HEALTH ORDERS


New Health Orders Update Face Covers, Quarantine

Two new health orders were issued Tuesday, July 7, 2020 by the Contra Costa Health Director as the county continues to try to flatten the current surge in new cases being seen. The new orders can be read in their entirety on the Town’s COVID-19 page at www.danville.ca.gov/coronavirus.

The first order has to do with facial coverings. This update brings the county’s order more into line with the guidelines for facial coverings put out by the State of California. The changes to the order include:

1. Individuals shall wear face coverings when less than six feet away from any person who is not a member of the individual’s household or living unit.
2. Individuals must wear face coverings when inside, on the grounds of, or waiting in line to enter, any business.
3. Businesses must require all employees, contractors, owners or volunteers to wear a face covering and to take all reasonable steps to prohibit any member of the public not wearing a face covering from entering or deny service to such.

The second order is an update to the Mass Quarantine order. The new order updates the description of close contact to include anyone who has been within six feet of a person with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes during the infectious period. All individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 or have had contact with someone with the virus are directed to quarantine themselves for the entirety of the 14-day incubation period.

REMINDER: Hartz Ave Closure Area is a Mask Zone

During the July 4 holiday weekend, the Town conducted the first weekend closure of Hartz Avenue to allow space for pedestrians to travel safely to expanded dining seating areas and to local retail establishments.

Signage has been posted throughout the area reminding visitors to use facial coverings while in the closure area. It is recommended that masks be worn at all times while in the closure area, except when at your table and dining at a restaurant. Wearing masks helps reduce the risk of virus transmission and helps keep customers, employees and business owners healthy.

As we continue to see cases rise in Contra Costa County, we remind and encourage residents to use face coverings when out and continue to maintain social distancing and good hand-washing hygiene.

TODAY'S KIWANIS JULY 4 PARADE FACT:

These days, the parade regularly includes about 1,000 participants, including military groups, politicians, local businesses, non-profit groups, and of course, youth sports. The parade draws between 35,000 and 45,000 spectators each year, and the funds raised by sponsors of the parade are donated back to local non-profits by the Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley. To date, Kiwanis has donated well over one million dollars to support these groups.

This year's parade will be virtual due to the pandemic, but viewers can watch the show by livestreaming or watching on CCTV. For information on the virtual event and where to view it go to www.srvkiwanis.org/parade.

HARTZ AVE WEEKEND STREET CLOSURES/MASK ZONE/FARMERS MARKET OPEN


Town of Danville Update: 7.2.20

Hartz Avenue Closure to be Mask Zone

Beginning at 4:00 a.m. on Friday, July 3, 2020, Hartz Avenue will be closed from Diablo Road to School Street in order to allow restaurants to offer expanded outdoor seating and to create safer distances for pedestrians to walk through the area to shop and dine. The closure will occur each weekend through August, following action by the Danville Town Council in late June.

The closure area will have signage posted throughout letting visitors know that it is a Mask zone. When visiting the downtown area, visitors are asked to have a facial covering on. Social distancing is still recommended as well, but masks should be worn at all times, with the exception of when dining at a restaurant.

The Mask zone follows State of California guidelines to help limit the spread of coronavirus germs and curtail the rise in COVID-19 cases currently being seen in Contra Costa County and the State of California.

Each week the street closure will last from 4:00 a.m. Friday morning until 11:00 p.m. Sunday evening.

Reminder: Fireworks are Illegal in Contra Costa

The July 4 holiday is typically one where evenings are punctuated with the cracks and booms of fireworks. However, we would like to remind everyone that fireworks are not legal in Contra Costa County. Even so-called ‘safe and sane’ fireworks are not allowed.

The hills around Danville are extremely dry, and a stray firework could create a hazardous fire situation. Help avoid that potential threat by not shooting off fireworks.

Farmers Market Open July 4 Weekend

We have received questions from residents whether the weekly farmers’ market will be open for the holiday weekend. The market will be open during their normal hours of 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. A reminder, the market is open on a limited basis due to the Shelter in Place order, and masks and social distancing are required.

KIWANIS JULY 4 FACT:

In 2008, for the Town’s 150th anniversary, the SRV Kiwanis Club re-created the Hay Days celebration, complete with bathing beauties, Miss Pioneer Belle, a barbeque and carnival games on July 3rd, and the parade on the 4th. The parade was the largest yet, with over 125 entries, including the Budweiser Clydesdales, the Wells Fargo wagon and a Civil War Reenactment group.

This year's parade is virtual with emcees showing photos, videos and more. To get more information on how to livestream or watch the event, go to www.srvkiwanis.org/parade.

MESSAGE FROM THE DANVILLE TOWN COUNCIL

We are reaching out to you today because we are concerned. Concerned for the health not only of our citizens but also our businesses and the Danville economy. For the past three and a half months, we have been dealing with a pandemic that has devastated our economy, our finances, our health (both physical and mental), and restricted our mobility and ability to travel. As difficult as these last months have been, all indications are relief is still months away. This presents us with an ongoing challenge, one that we must face as a united community.

We have been very fortunate here in Danville that our residents worked with us to follow the county health order. Many have sacrificed to keep the curve flat. And to those who have done so, your community thanks you. But we continue to see those who choose to ignore their personal responsibility, exhibiting behaviors that unnecessarily expose themselves and others to risk. We recognize the hardship we have all been under with the stay at home order and the shutdowns of local business, but we ask that everyone stay the course.

Our government leaders here in Danville, along with those at the county and state levels, continue to try to “thread the needle,” striking a proper balance between keeping our community safe and healthy, while phasing back activities that present greater risk of exposure to COVID-19. Many of our businesses have been allowed to resume operation on a limited basis, but others have not yet been cleared to do so.

As you have no doubt heard, there has been a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases across the state which has caused both the governor and our county health officials to delay the timeline for further reopening of businesses. Not only that, there is concern that if this rise can’t be slowed or stopped that there could be a rollback of some of the re-openings that have already occurred. For the good of Danville, our community and our businesses, we must work to avoid this.

In order to assist our restaurants with reopening safely, the Town Council has approved a series of street or parking space closures to allow the restaurants to expand their outdoor dining. Yet even so, we continue to receive complaints of businesses not following the safety protocols necessary to staying open. We ask that all businesses adhere to the Shelter in Place Order for the safety of both patrons and staff.

Another issue where we ask the community to follow the guidelines of the SIP is in the area of large gatherings. One of the most anticipated events each summer is the annual Kiwanis July 4 Parade. As a result of the pandemic and the SIP order, the Kiwanis took the proactive step of taking the parade virtual this year, as a gathering of the size would not be allowed under the order. The Kiwanis organization has put a massive amount of time and effort into making the virtual parade something that will capture the history of the event, as well as the spirit of Danville. The parade will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 4, 2020. To get information on the event as well as to see where it will be livestreamed, go to www.srvkiwanis.org/parade.

However, while the Kiwanis are making these efforts to provide a parade while still keeping the community safe, the group of Danville citizens who have started the Sunday car cruises have announced that they will be doing a cruise on July 4, and are calling on residents to ‘line the streets’ along their route. We can’t stress strongly enough that having that many people out on the street presents a significant virus transmission risk, and we are asking residents to please NOT do this. The Kiwanis Club chose not to hold their event for the safety of the community. Asking people to come out to watch a car cruise flies in the face of that sacrifice and creates a safety issue.

It has been a long three and a half months, and we still have a ways to go before we are through this crisis. We ask that you all continue to be patient, practice social distancing, wear facial coverings and continue to follow the restrictions of the SIP. Ignoring the SIP is contributing to the rise in COVID-19 cases and could potentially slow down the Town’s recovery from this crisis even further.

Thank you and stay safe,

Mayor Karen Stepper
