April 29 - Shelter-in-Place Orders Extended through May 31, 2020 as Some Rules Ease

Seven Bay Area Public Health Officers who ordered a shelter in place in mid-March will extend the orders through May 31 while some restrictions are eased and tools to strengthen containment of COVID-19 are put into place. The social distancing intervention has slowed the increase of new cases and prevented the anticipated medical surge. As restrictions are eased, it is critical to ensure that most of the Prior Order’s restrictions remain in place.

However, the new Order makes a number of significant changes, which are summarized as follows: Most real estate, construction, landscaping, and outdoor businesses can resume granted that appropriate social distancing protocols and project safety protocols are followed as detailed in the health order.

Additionally, the County Health Officer will consider easing or expanding restrictions based on progress we collectively achieve on several key indicators described in the new Order and referred to as the COVID-19 Indicators.
