As the case rate rises in Livermore, it is more important than ever to:

  • frequently wash your hands, and
  • stay home if you are sick or show COVID-19 symptoms.

On April 17, 2020, the Alameda County Public Health Officer released an order requiring everyone to wear face coverings when around others outside their household. This Order was updated on June 5, 2020 to include the requirement of wearing face coverings outdoors while engaged in physical activity, but not necessarily for the entire duration of activity. View the County Face Coverings web page, which includes the updated Face Coverings Order and the press release announcing the update. 

Widespread use of Face Coverings is a critical part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. 

Per the Order, everyone over the age of 12 should wear a Face Covering when:

  • outside their home and within 30 feet of anyone else other than members of their Social Bubble;
  • in the workplace, except when in a private space or area not regularly used by others; or
  • preparing food or other items for sale or distribution to people outside their household.

Face Coverings may be removed in the following circumstances, but should always be kept on hand:

  • when eating or drinking alone or with members of one's Social Bubble; or
  • when alone or with members of one's household in an outdoor area such as a park or patio, while maintaining six feet of distance from others.
