This post contains information originally published in Supervisor John Gioia’s eUpdate from April 29, 2020. We offer huge thanks to Supervisor Gioia and his team for all their hard work and commitment in keeping everyone in our community safe and informed during this challenging time!
Bay Area Health Officers have extended the Shelter-at-Home Health Order until May 31. The order now allows all construction activities, certain businesses that operate primarily outdoors, and some outdoor activities to resume operation with specific conditions.
The eased restrictions reflect progress due to our collective actions to stay home and social distance.
The continued restrictions are based on the fact there is still evidence of continued significant community transmission of the virus and uncertainty about the degree of undetected asymptomatic transmission. Health Officers are also concerned that the age, condition and health of a significant portion of our population is at risk for serious health complications, including death, from COVID-19.
The Health Officers believe their order is based on scientific evidence and best practices regarding the most effective approaches to slow transmission of the virus.
We will get through this together! Remember your individual actions have big collective impact: Stay in Place, Maintain your Space, Cover your Face, Support Local Safely.
