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.
SANTA CLARA COUNTY UPDATE March 31, 20200
Shelter in Place Order updated and extended through May 3, 2020.
Health officers in seven Bay Area jurisdictions are extending a previous stay-at-home order through May 3, 2020 in order to preserve critical hospital capacity across the region.
The previous three-week order was set to expire on April 7. The new stay-at-home order will supersede the previous order and go into effect at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31. It is a complement to the indefinite statewide stay-at-home order issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom earlier this month.
Like the previous local order, the new order requires people to stay at home except for doing essential activities, such as grocery shopping, in six counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara, as well as the City of Berkeley.
Non-essential businesses will remain closed.
The new order adds some clarifying language around essential business and activities.
It also as adds new directives, including:
- Use of playgrounds, dog parks, public picnic areas, and similar recreational areas is prohibited. These areas must be closed to public use.
- Use of shared public recreational facilities such as golf courses, tennis and basketball courts, pools, and rock walls is prohibited. These facilities must be closed for recreational use.
- Sports requiring people to share a ball or other equipment must be limited to people in the same household
- Requires essential businesses to develop a Social Distancing Protocol before April 3
- Most construction—residential and commercial—is prohibited
- Funerals limited to no more than 10 people attending
- Essential businesses expanded to include service providers that enable residential transactions (notaries, title companies, Realtors, etc.); funeral homes and cemeteries; moving companies, rental car companies and rideshare services that specifically enable essential activities
- Essential businesses that continue to operate facilities must scale down operations to their essential component only
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.

The Center for Disease Control recommends the following precautions:
· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
· Stay home when you are sick.
· Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
· CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
· Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
· If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
· If you are sick, stay home and contact your primary care physician if you have a fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.
