The Alameda County Health Officer Dr. Erica Pan joined six other Bay Area public health jurisdictions to issue an order for all Alameda County residents to shelter in place to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and preserve critical health care capacity across the region. The full order can be read at http://acphd.org/media/559658/health-officer-order-shelter-in-place-20200316.pdf. This order contains specific recommendations for residents about when it is appropriate to leave the home, which is only to engage in essential activities or to receive essential services. The City of Union City provides a number of essential services as defined by the County’s order and we are continuing to evaluate how this order and possibly other future orders will impact city services moving forward.
Effective today, March 16, 2020, to support the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines and Alameda County’s Shelter in Place order, the City of Union City is implementing partial and full closure of several facilities. The City will also activate its Emergency Operations Center effective Tuesday, March 17 to monitor the ongoing spread of COVID-19 and assess real-time impacts.
Please note that emergency services provided by Police and Fire will not be impacted by these closures.
