5 Bay Area Counties Issue New Regional Stay Home Order Effective Monday
Amidst a record-breaking surge of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, today Alameda County joined other Bay Area health departments and the City of Berkeley in implementing the State’s New Regional Stay Home Order to prevent our health care systems from being overburdened and save lives. In Alameda County, the new order takes effect on Monday, December 7 at 12:01 am through Monday, January 4, 2021.

As part of the new health order's sector closures and activity restrictions, no outdoor dining may take place; restaurants will be allowed to operate for take-out and delivery only during this time. Retail will be permitted indoors at 20% capacity, with special hours for seniors and others at high risk. Other activities and facilities that had previously been allowed to operate outdoors are now required to close, including:

  • Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
  • Indoor recreational facilities
  • Hair salons/Barbershops
  • Personal care services
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Wineries, bars, breweries, distilleries
  • Family entertainment centers

The complete sector closures and restrictions on activity under the State’s Regional Stay Home Order are described here. View Alameda County's Approved Open & Closed Businesses here.

Help Bring Holiday Joy to Oakland’s Children

Imagine the joy when a child receives a special, unexpected present. The 41st Annual Community Toy Drive makes the holidays joyful for Oakland children whose families can’t afford gifts. The Office of Mayor Libby Schaaf and nearly 300 volunteers, teamed up last year to distribute toys, books, sports equipment and gift cards to nearly 9,000 children from low-income families.

Each year, demand exceeds what we have. To help us meet our needs, please make a tax-deductible monetary donation.
