New orders from the Alameda County Offices Public Health Department go into effect today.
Childcare and extracurricular activities are now open for all children, not just children of essential workers. In addition, libraries are allowed to provide curbside pick-up of books and other media.
These new orders also permit for "Social Bubbles." Social Bubbles are small groups (12 or fewer people) from different households and can participate in small outdoor gatherings. Participation in a Social Bubble should be limited to one bubble at a time, follow social distancing practices (maintaining a minimum of 6 ft. distance), and wear face coverings. For more information on Social Bubbles, please see the press release below:
New Health Officer Orders effective June 8 allow for “Social Bubbles,” childcare and extracurricular activities for all children, and other businesses to resume including pet grooming. Face coverings must be worn at all times, including when active outdoors. Accompanying reopening plan outlines next phases of relaxations. If you have questions about the orders, please contact our Public Heath Department by email [email protected] or call (510) 268-2101.
