At its July 14 meeting, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to support an attestation to become a variance county; the State approved the attestation this morning. The County was also placed on the State’s Monitoring List. See Press Release.
For Alameda County, this means that outdoor dining can resume. However, face coverings are required at ALL times and may only be removed during the physical act of eating or drinking. See Guidance for restaurants providing outdoor dining, take-out, drive-through, and delivery.
Additionally, Alameda County is on the State’s County Monitoring List for a third consecutive day and is subject to restrictions per State Health Officer Orders issued on July 13. Among other restrictions, effective today:
- Places of worship can hold outdoor services only.
- Indoor malls will be required to close. This does not impact other indoor retail at this time.
Alameda County will be updating local orders and communication materials to reflect these changes and reduce confusion. The County Reopening Plan remains paused and will continue to align with the State’s orders for Monitoring List counties.
It is critical that we continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Businesses can do so by adhering to state and local guidelines in implementing a Site-Specific Protection Plan. Employees must wear a face covering when in the workplace except when in a private space or area not regularly used by others. Businesses are also required to remind customers or visitors to wear face coverings while inside or waiting in line to enter their business as well as practice social distancing of 6 feet.
Pleasanton businesses are encouraged to post the No Mask, No Service sign to remind customers that face coverings are required at their establishment. Click on image or HERE to download a PDF to print.
