Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Local Updates

The City of Campbell continues to work closely with our partnering agencies to monitor how the novel coronavirus is impacting our communities. We are attentive to the information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and reviewing guidance provided by the County’s Public Health Department. 


The Governor’s March 19, 2020 Executive Order directing all Californians to stay home except for essential needs complements the Santa Clara County Public Health Officer’s existing order directing all residents to shelter at home, issued on March 16, 2020. The Governor’s action reinforces the importance of our local order, which remains in effect and will continue to be implemented.


The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department has issued the following order: 

  • Directing all individuals living in the county to shelter at their place of residence
  • Except that they may leave to provide or receive certain essential services or engage in certain essential activities and work for essential businesses and governmental services
  • Exempting individuals experiencing homelessness from the shelter in place order but urging them to find shelter and government agencies to provide it
  • Directing all businesses and governmental agencies to cease non-essential operations at physical locations in the county; prohibiting all non essential gatherings of any number of individuals; and ordering cessation of all non-essential travel.

These measures have been put in place to proactively help slow the spread of COVID-19.

 The City is implementing a 30-day rolling plan period. During this period, the City will continue to proactively take the steps to prioritize the health and safety our employees and community members. Our focus is to maintain essential service and keep you informed.
