Bay Area coronavirus updates | Mon., May 25

The latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Monday afternoon include:

  • The USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum is holding an online Memorial Day commemoration event Monday due to the museum’s closure during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The commemoration includes videos of past Memorial Day ceremonies aboard the ship.
  • In Sonoma County, restaurants and other food facilities are now allowed to offer onsite sit-down meals outdoors. That is one significant change in the Sonoma County Health Officer’s public shelter-in-place order, which expands the list of Sonoma County businesses able to operate as part of the county’s move into Stage Two of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan. The amended order went into effect after midnight Saturday morning.
  • While most neighborhood parks and recreation facilities in Berkeley remain closed, the city has reopened tennis and pickleball courts for singles play provided social distancing and other measures are used. The sports are now allowed under the revised shelter-in-place order issued May 18 and the city recreation department as of this weekend has begun taking online reservations for court time.
