Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

California and Alameda County issue Stay at Home Orders to Slow the Spread of the Coronavirus

Alameda County, along with six other Bay Area counties, are extending a previous stay-at-home order through May 3, 2020 in order to preserve critical hospital capacity across the region. The previous three-week order was set to expire on April 7. While the prior order has been effective in reducing the rate of transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), it is not enough. There has been a significant increase in the number of positive cases, hospitalization and deaths from COVID-19, which is beginning to strain healthcare resources. The health officers have determined that more and stricter social distancing is needed to slow the rate of spread, prevent deaths, and stop the health care system from becoming overwhelmed.

Compliance with Stay at Home Orders

The Union City Police Department will inform and educate members of the public and non-essential businesses that are in violation of the Alameda County “Shelter in Place” Order. It is our goal to achieve voluntary compliance with the order. 

Process for Business Compliance Complaints

We have launched Covid19compliance@acgov.org as a new email for compliance complaints regarding non-essential businesses and non-essential activities in violation of the Alameda County public health order. A list of compliance officers for local agencies is being compiled and complaints will be forwarded to the appropriate jurisdiction as they come in. We will keep the data for Public Health to better assist in tracking where and what the violations are.
