Dear Peralta Community,
Alameda County has released Health Officer Order Number 21-01a which took effect at 12:01 am on Tuesday June 15, 2021. This new order rescinds the Alameda County shelter in place order that has been in effect (in some form) since March 2020. After nearly 15 months, the shelter in place order implemented to help keep the community safe from the spread of COVID-19 has been lifted. That is good news for sure.
