Bay Area coronavirus updates | Tue., June 2

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

  • Alameda County officials on Tuesday announced the launch of a new free COVID-19 coronavirus testing site opening in West Oakland this week. The center will open at Wednesday and operate for four weeks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • A few days after Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick confirmed he would not enforce the county health officer’s stay-at-home order regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, it appears as if he and other county leaders are trying to get on the same page. In a joint statement issued Monday, Essick and Sonoma County Board of Supervisors President Susan Gorin announced that the county will begin looking at ways to loosen some restrictions.
  • New parts of Santa Clara County’s economy and civic life will be allowed to reopen Friday after weeks of being shuttered by the novel coronavirus pandemic and the efforts to slow its spread.
