REMEMBER: Face coverings must be worn at all times by all members of the public, including outdoors while engaged in physical activities (walking, running, biking, etc.) and within THIRTY (30) feet of people outside of their household.
Children aged 12 and younger are not required to wear a face covering, and any child two years old or younger should not wear a face covering. The County Order does not apply if a person is only with members of their own household and does not expect to come into contact with a member of the public.

From Alameda County Office of Emergency Services:
“Equity considerations are central to Alameda County’s plans for wider distribution of the vaccine, and engagement with our community partners is essential to reaching our high-risk and disproportionally impacted communities,” said Kimi Watkins-Tartt, Director of the Alameda County Public Health Department.

While most health care systems will vaccinate their own health care workers, Alameda County will support and host a vaccination point of distribution (POD) later this week for an initial group of highest risk 911 first responders and hospital staff.

Visit https://covid-19.acgov.org/vaccines for more information about local vaccination planning.
