Here are some of the latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, as of Monday afternoon.
Indoor activities across California must be reined in as the state combats a resurgence of virus. The state ordered all 58 counties to close indoor activities at restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, zoos, museums, card rooms and all bars. Each county on the state’s coronavirus monitoring list for three consecutive days — including Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties — must also close gyms, places of worship, offices in non-critical sectors, hair and nail salons and indoor malls in addition to the statewide closure.
Santa Clara County is opening three additional Covid-19 diagnostic testing centers next week in San Jose at Independence High School C Commons at 617 N. Jackson Ave., the County of Santa Clara Service Center Auditorium at 1555 Berger Road and in Gilroy at the South County Annex at 9300 Wren Ave. The walk-up testing sites are free, easy nasal swab tests that do not require an appointment, symptoms, insurance, or doctors note and will be administered regardless of immigration status.
Alameda County may soon subject to the more stringent state orders as early as Wednesday — the county was added to the watchlist Sunday.
The Alameda County Community Food Bank announced a partnership Friday with Amazon to deliver food to county residents who have tested positive for Covid-19 and cannot obtain their own groceries.
The Contra Costa County Library System will open the Pleasant Hill library for front door service on Tuesday at a temporary location in the City Hall Community Rooms at 100 Gregory Lane.
