  • Staying Healthy During Shelter in Place

    There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. 

    Recommendations from the California Department of Public Health:

    • Washing hands with soap and water.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
    • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.
    • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
    • Staying away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
    • If you smoke or vape, consider quitting. Smokers who already have lung disease or reduced lung capacity could be at increased risk of serious illness
    • Following guidance from public health officials.

    In Alameda County, members of the public are required to wear face coverings when around people outside of their household by order of the Alameda County Health Officer.
