Bay Area Health Officers Move to Implement the State’s New Regional Stay Home Order, Not Waiting Until Local Hospitals Are Near Crisis to Act

Full statement here:https://covid-19.acgov.org/covid19-assets/docs/press/joint-release-2020.12.04.pdf

Yesterday, Dec. 4, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that all sectors other than retail and essential operations would be closed in regions of the State where less than 15% of ICU beds are available under a new Regional Stay Home Order.

Although health officials throughout the Bay Area are glad to see the State take action in light of the rapidly escalating surge in hospitalizations statewide, many believe even more aggressive action is necessary in the Bay Area to slow the surge and prevent our local hospitals from being overwhelmed.

Rather than waiting until Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed availability reaches critical levels and delaying closures that are inevitable, the Health Officers for the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara, as well as the City of Berkeley are jointly announcing that they will implement the State’s Regional Stay Home Order now.

Rising hospitalization rates across the region threaten not only our community members with severe #COVID19, but anyone who may need care. Acting together now we will have the greatest impact on the surge and save more lives.

Each of us can fight the spread. Keep your family safe by avoiding even small gatherings outside of your household and not traveling. We don’t want holiday gatherings and travel to create a spike of cases on top of the surge we’re already seeing.

Consistent with the State framework, the 6 jurisdictions are working to ensure all sectors have at least 48-hour notice of these closures.

In #AlamedaCounty it is scheduled to take effect on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020. The new restrictions will remain in place until Jan. 4, 2021.

We're in this together. Stay home to stay healthy, and we'll be together again soon.

Statement on State’s Limited Stay-at-Home Order for Purple Tier Counties #AlamedaCounty

Full statement here:https://covid-19.acgov.org/covid19-assets/docs/press/press-release-2020.11.19.pdf

Please find the State’s press release here: https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/11/19/state-issues-limited-stay-at-home-order-to-slow-spread-of-covid-19/

The State announced today a limited Stay at Home Order generally requiring that non-essential work, movement, and gatherings stop between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. PST in counties in the Purple Tier per the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

The order will take effect at 10 p.m. Saturday, November 21 and remain in effect until 5 a.m., December 21, although it may be extended or revised as needed.

Alameda County is in the Purple Tier and residents and businesses will be impacted by the State’s Order. We welcome this focused, targeted effort by the State to slow the steep rise in #COVID19 cases and hospitalizations occurring in Alameda County, the Bay Area, and the State.

This Order means that we must restrict our interactions with people outside of our households for non-essential activities or social gatherings during the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

We ask our residents to continue to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities from COVID-19 by limiting gathering with anyone you don’t live with, wearing a face covering whenever you leave home, maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from anyone you don’t live with, wash your hands frequently, and follow the Bay Area’s Holiday Gathering and Travel Guidance

As a reminder, we are in the midst of flu season and this year it is more critical than ever for everyone 6 months of age and older to get a flu shot. We must avoid a “twindemic” and surges that compromise our hospital and health care system along with flu symptoms that mimic COVID-19.

Here's the latest...
11/17/2020

Here's the latest...

Today the State moved #AlamedaCounty to the Purple Tier per the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Starting at 12:01 a.m. on November 18 previously open sectors and activities are restricted to State’s Purple Tier allowances and restrictions http://ow.ly/kJRQ50Cmk48

We need residents and businesses to, once again, rise to the challenge and help flatten the curve. Stay home for the holidays, wear face masks, maintain at least 6 feet of distance, wash your hands frequently, and get your flu shot.

Now more than ever, we must protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our neighbors with these simple strategies. We thank Alameda County residents and businesses for their support and efforts – we all need to work together to keep each other healthy.

The County of Alameda announces the Alameda County Arts Relief Grant Program to assist nonprofit arts and cultural organizations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This program is managed by the Office of the Alameda County Arts Commission under the leadership of Alameda County Auditor-Controller Melissa Wilk and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

Through this CARES Act-funded grant program, it is anticipated that up to $900,000 will be granted to support the survival and sustainability of arts and cultural nonprofits throughout the County with additional support provided to organizations located in the County’s unincorporated areas. The arts in Alameda County and nationally have been particularly hard hit as arts and cultural venues were among the first to close and are among the last designated for reopening. The County recognizes that the arts and cultural organizations are an essential part of our community and an instrumental aspect of our economic recovery.
