Bay Area Exits State’s Regional Stay at Home Order; #AlamedaCounty Is a Purple Tier County

Full statement: http://ow.ly/omKY50DhS02

The California Department of Public Health announced that effective today, Jan. 25, the Bay Area region meets the criteria to exit the Regional Stay at Home Order due to encouraging long-term projections for ICU bed availability.

#AlamedaCounty is now in the Purple Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Activities and businesses permitted in the Purple Tier may resume operation immediately. https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/

Thanks to the commitment and sacrifice of residents, workers, and businesses under the State’s Regional Stay at Home Order, we avoided the worst of the winter surge and helped our health care workers to continue serving all of us through this difficult period.

However, the number of new cases reported daily is still more than double the summer peak. Residents must continue to wear masks, keep at least six feet of distance from anyone they don’t live with, wash hands frequently, and stay home if they don’t feel well.

To ensure we can move forward through the State’s color-tiered framework and to allow more activities and businesses to reopen, residents are strongly encouraged to continue to stay home as much as possible and avoid gathering with other households.

Residents are reminded of the state prohibition on gatherings of more than three households and should avoid Super Bowl parties and similar activities.

We may be past the winter surge, but #COVID19 is still with us. We are only in the early stages of our vaccination campaign, and the virus has shown us it is capable of returning again and again. That means that, even as we cautiously reopen, we must continue to do the things we know work to keep each other safe.
