Bay Area Stay-at-Home Orders Update

December 4, 2020

Dear Berkeley City College Community,

Today the County of Alameda, in a joint memo with other Bay Area Health Officers, issued an order that implements a Stay at Home order until January 4, 2021. This order is effective Monday, December 7, 2020.

Concerning schools, the Order referenced guidance from the California Regional Stay at Home Order page. Language from guidance (Refer to “What does the Regional Stay Home Order do?”) states the following:

The following sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible with appropriate infectious disease preventative measures including 100% masking and physical distancing:

  • Critical infrastructure
  • Schools
  • Non-urgent medical and dental care
  • Child care and pre-K

To adhere to this guidance and do our part to limit the spread of COVID and the impact on ICU’s in Bay Area hospitals, please limit campus access to only absolute necessity items, during the mandated Stay-at-Home orders.

Please continue to submit your Building Access Form to gain approval and access to campus offices and classrooms. It is imperative that you continue to practice health and safety protocols while on campus, such as wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and maintaining 6 feet of social distancing. The form provides a record of all personnel who enter the building and serves as record keeping, should there be a case of exposure.

Wishing you all good health and safety,

Dr. Angélica Garcia
