Updates to Community & Recreation Services, as of July 6, 2020

The Community & Recreation Services Department continues to monitor the Alameda County Public Health orders and is observing guidance from other public health agencies to evaluate and modify programs as well as the use of City facilities.  We expect that operational restrictions will still apply even as the shelter in place orders are eased or lifted.  We appreciate your ongoing patience as we work to prepare public areas and programs that will meet public health orders and maintain safe practices by the time of reopening begins.
