April 29, 2020
The City of Piedmont is working to keep residents informed on the evolving COVID-19 situation. This email update will be sent out weekly on Wednesday night. We want to make sure as many people as possible get this important information so please share this with others and encourage them to subscribe to the update. The City is also updating the City’s website and social media channels. Stay connected and informed!
Revised Order Issued
On Wednesday, April 29th, the Alameda County Health Officer issued a revised shelter in place order which will become effective on Monday, May 4th. The revised order largely keeps current shelter in place requirements and restrictions on non-essential activities in place and extends them through the end of May. The new order includes limited easing of specific restrictions for a small number of lower-risk activities.
It’s important to note that provisions of the current order remain in force until the end of the day on Sunday, May 3rd. In addition, the requirement to wear face coverings when leaving the home is still in place.
The City of Piedmont is determining how the revised order will effect activities in Piedmont and will provide detailed information to the community on or before Friday, May 1st.
To read the order, a summary document, and the joint press release, please visit the Alameda County Public Health Department’s COVID-19 page at http://www.acphd.org/2019-ncov.aspx
Piedmonters have inquired about the availability of COVID-19 testing for their families. Piedmonters wishing to be tested should first contact their physician. If testing is unavailable through normal medical channels, community members can consult the list of COVID-19 testing locations in Alameda County, which is published by the Alameda County Public Health Department. Testing procedures, timing of results, and populations served vary by site, so please call the contact number or visit the testing site’s website for the most updated information.
The Alameda County Public Health Department has formed a COVID-19 Testing Task Force that has a goal to reach 2,500 tests per day countywide, in coordination with existing testing capacity as well as public-private partnerships with cities, health care providers, and non-traditional providers.
