Alameda County Health Officer Requires Wearing Masks Indoors in Public Spaces
August 3, 2021

On August 3, 2021 the health officials of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sonoma counties, as well as the City of Berkeley, issued a new requirement that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors in public places.

Vaccines remain the most powerful tool in the fight against COVID-19, including the Delta variant. Nonetheless, the Delta variant is infecting a small percentage of the vaccinated in the Bay Area — who still remain strongly protected against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. In those instances of infection in a vaccinated person, a face covering prevents further spread.

“Face coverings are a simple and effective tool that everyone can use to slow the spread COVID-19,” said Dr. Nicholas Moss, Alameda County Health Officer. “Using face masks in indoor public spaces, regardless of vaccination status, will help us protect each other and end this summer surge.”

Remember that for masks to work properly, they need to completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly against the sides of your face and around your nose.

California Reopens: What You Need to Know
June 14, 2021

Tomorrow, June 15th, marks the reopening of California’s economy. Simply put, many public health restrictions, mandates, bans, and color-coded tiers will come to an end. We encourage our community to visit the Alameda County Public Health Department's COVID-19 web site or the State of California’s COVID-19 web site for the latest updates and information about California’s reopening.

Though many portions of California will reopen on June 15th, rules regarding all workplaces are still being determined by the state. CalOSHA is expected to announce updated standards for workplaces as early as this week. Once the workplace guidelines are released, the City of Piedmont will review the plan and determine a path forward for reopening city facilities. Our goal is to protect the health of our community members and employees while remaining in compliance with the applicable workplace safety laws and regulations.

We want to thank our community for your support and perseverance over the last year. We ask for your continued patience as we navigate California’s reopening. We will continue to update residents through the City of Piedmont website, social media platforms, and our weekly Constant Contact newsletters.

The CDC has issued updated guidance on choosing safer activities during the pandemic. The new guidance places indoor and outdoor activities into three categories for both unvaccinated and fully vaccinated people: Safest, Less Safe, and, Least Safe. Please see the graphic below for a visual representation of the guidance. Discussing masks, the Alameda County Public Health Department says, “Masks continue to be an important and proven intervention to protect residents from COVID-19. Vaccinated residents and families are strongly advised to continue to wear masks in public places, especially in crowded settings, including indoors.”
