LIVERMORE CITY COUNCIL ENCOURAGES THE COMMUNITY TO COMPLY WITH ALAMEDA COUNTY ORDER
LIVERMORE, Calif. – Monday’s order by the Alameda County Public Health Department (www.acphd.org) directing its residents to shelter at home, with the exception of those seeking or providing essential services, is an unprecedented step towards slowing the spread of COVID-19 and preserving healthcare system capacity. The Livermore City Council encourages all Livermore residents to comply with this order.
“We are all in this together and it is the responsibility of each and every Livermore resident to do what they can to slow the spread and protect our community,” said Mayor John Marchand. “We are resilient and we will get through this.”
The Alameda County Public Health Department joined six other Bay Area health jurisdictions to issue the order. There is evidence of widespread community transmission in Alameda County and an increase in cases in the region.
