Stay Vigilant to Stop the Spread
While the return to the Purple Tier is welcome news for our community and largely the result of our continued efforts to use COVID-19 precautions, the number of new cases reported daily is more than double the summer peak. We must continue to wear masks, keep 6 feet apart, and avoid crowds - this includes individuals who have received the COVID vaccine.

 
Get Notified When You're Eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine
Residents, employers, and health care providers are asked to complete one of the following forms so that the County can notify you when the vaccine might be available according to the state prioritization framework:
City of Oakland Resumes Residential Permit Parking (RPP) Enforcement

In resuming the enforcement of RPP areas, the City aims to promote the availability of on-street parking spaces for residents in areas with high parking demand. The City will provide no-penalty warning citations from February 1 through February 28.
