  • The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors may approve on Tuesday an ordinance establishing administrative fines for violations of public health orders involving wearing face coverings, social distancing and gatherings. The ordinance would formally allow infraction citations to be given to those who violate COVID-19-related county health orders.
  • The 20th year of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival will still take place Oct. 2 to 4, but not at its usual locations in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco as originally planned due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
