Bay Area Region Falls Below 15 Percent ICU Capacity Threshold: #StayHome Order Extended and Continues to Align with State’s Restrictions
Full statement here:https://covid-19.acgov.org/covid19-assets/docs/press/press-release-2020.12.16.pdf
The State announced today that the availability of intensive care unit (ICU) beds has fallen below 15% in the Bay Area Region. This means that the Stay at Home restrictions adopted by Alameda County earlier this month remain in effect for a minimum of three weeks, starting today.
Because Alameda County’s restrictions already match the State’s restrictions, there are no additional changes to permitted activities at this time. After the minimum three weeks, the State’s order could be lifted once the region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%.
The week ending December 12 was the single worst week of the pandemic so far in #AlamedaCounty, with more than 5000 new #COVID19 cases reported and over 1000 cases reported on each of the last two days. The number of people hospitalized with #COVID19 and in the ICU are five times higher than one month ago and increasing daily.
The state of the pandemic in Alameda County is the worst it has ever been. We must use every tool we have to ensure the work we’ve done and the months away from our loved ones will have been worth it.
#StayHome as much as possible, #WearAMask, and avoid all gatherings. If you are less than 6 feet from someone outside your household for 15 minutes or more, please monitor yourself for symptoms and get tested.
We continue to be grateful for our community’s efforts throughout this difficult year and we must ask for everyone to help again. If we all do our part, stay-at-home restrictions will work and save lives.
The individual and collective sacrifices of our families and local businesses can make the difference between a short or prolonged period under the Stay At Home Order. Staying home now will save lives and allow us to get back together again soon.

San Leandro Police Investigating Sixth Homicide of the Year.
On Monday, December 14, 2020, about 4:50PM, San Leandro Police Officers heard and responded to the sound of multiple gunshots coming from the 600 block of East 14th Street. Upon arrival, officers located two subjects suffering from gunshot wounds. Oakland resident Laquan Amari Matthews, 23 years old, sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his torso. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. An uninvolved San Leandro resident sustained a gunshot wound to her lower extremity. She also was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
San Leandro Police Detectives responded to the scene for the investigation. Preliminary information revealed that there was some type of physical confrontation between the victim and the suspect right before approximately thirty gunshots were fired from multiple firearms.
“We are in the early stages of this investigation and the motive for this homicide remains unclear,” said San Leandro Police Lieutenant Ted Henderson. “Anyone with any information they feel may be valuable in helping us solve this homicide is urged to contact the San Leandro Police Department at (510) 577-2740.”

LIVERMORE, CA – Alameda County Regional Emergency Communications Center (ACRECC) has officially launched its text to 9-1-1 campaign. Mobile users now have the ability to send text messages to 9-1-1, allowing deaf, hearing and speech impaired residents, or those in situations where it is too dangerous to make a voice call to 9-1-1, a potentially lifesaving option.
"Call if you can -- text if you can't" is the slogan developed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), adopted by several California jurisdictions. ACRECC is now equipped to receive and respond to mobile phone SMS Text to 9-1-1 messages, joining other dispatch centers across the state.
A Division of the Alameda County Fire Department, “ACRECC delivers regional communications through dispatching fire and emergency medical services that optimize the deployment and coordination of emergency resources while providing superior customer service to several agencies within Alameda County,” said Dispatch Manager Rosa Ramos. “Our ability to deploy an alternate method in receiving emergency communications from our residents is another tool in keeping our communities safe.”
ACRECC serves the Cities of City of Alameda - Local Government, City of Dublin, CA - Government, Emeryville's Community Services Department, City of Fremont, CA Government, City of Livermore City Hall, City of Newark, CA Government, City of Pleasanton, City of San Leandro, City of Union City, California, the unincorporated communities of Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, Livermore, San Lorenzo, and Sunol, the Berkeley Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Labs, and Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, and is the dispatch center for Falck Alameda County.
The FCC has established guidelines for how to contact 9-1-1 via text:
• If you can, always make a 9-1-1 voice call, "Call if you can - text if you can't."
• If you are deaf, hard-of-hearing or speech disabled, and Text to 9-1-1 is not available, use a TTY or telecommunications relay service, if available.
• Text to 9-1-1 is not available if the device is “roaming.”
• If you text 9-1-1 and text is not available in your area, you will receive a bounce back message advising "text is not available please make a voice call to 9-1-1."
• Location accuracy varies by carrier and should not be relied upon. Be prepared to give your location.
• Text to 9-1-1 service will not be available if the wireless carrier cannot ascertain a location of the device sending the message.
• A text or data plan is required to place a text to 9-1-1.
• Photos and videos cannot be sent to 9-1-1. They cannot be received at this time.
• Text messages should be sent in plain language and not contain popular abbreviations (SMH, LOL, ICYMI) or emojis, which will not be recognized.
• Text to 9-1-1 cannot be sent in a group message.
• Texts must be in English only. There currently is no language interpretation for text available. This is still in development.

The State's Regional Stay-at-Home order went into effect today. Here is a snapshot of what is permitted to be open:
Interim City Manager Appointed
During the December 7th City Council meeting, the Council unanimously voted to approve the contract of Ms. Fran Robustelli, who will serve as interim City Manager beginning on December 21st. Her selection follows on current City Manager Jeff Kay’s previously announced departure to become the new city manager for the City of Healdsburg, California.
For the past 25 years, Ms. Robustelli has served in executive roles with special districts and city governments. Most recently, Ms. Robustelli served as the interim city manager for the City of Clayton in Contra Costa County. With previous specialization in human resources, Ms. Robustelli is also skilled in a wide range of other City service areas, including economic development, budget & risk management, and emergency services.
“Fran Robustelli is a seasoned and effective leader who has grappled with many difficult decisions, including challenges arising from the coronavirus pandemic in her previous assignment,” said Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter. “I am impressed with Fran’s governmental experience and desire to continue moving San Leandro forward seamlessly as Jeff Kay transitions to his next opportunity.”
In response to her appointment, Ms. Robustelli stated, “I look forward to working with the City Council, staff, and other community stakeholders as we collectively work together during this difficult time resulting from the pandemic.” Ms. Robustelli’s interim service in this role is expected to continue until the City Council completes a national recruitment for the City Manager position, which will commence early next year.
