ALAMEDA COUNTY HEALTH OFFICER EXTENDS SHELTER IN PLACE ORDER TO MAY 3, 2020 CITY PARKS TO CLOSE EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2020

Today, the Alameda County Health Officer extended its shelter in place order for Alameda County residents through May 3, 2020 and strengthened, clarified, and extended the previous order issued on March 16, 2020.

The new order is available on the Alameda County Public Health Department’s website at www.acphd.org/media/563688/health-officer-order-20-04-shelter-in-place-20200331.pdf.

A summary of changes between the prior order and the updated order is available HERE, and a Frequently Asked Questions document is available HERE.

This revised order makes changes in several important items, including:

  •   Availability of parks and recreation spaces
  •   Ongoing commercial and residential construction
  •   Ongoing commercial and residential landscaping services

Pursuant to the County Order, the City of Piedmont will close all of its parks effective tomorrow, April 1, 2020, until further notice. The City of Piedmont will have updated information available on its website by Thursday, April 2nd detailing how these changes will affect the Piedmont community.

The City asks residents to be patient as we work to implement the County’s new order. WE OWE IT TO EACH OTHER TO STAY HOME and are required by the State of California and Alameda County to do so. The best thing we can do for the community and each other is to comply with the order to shelter in place at our homes.
