Mobility studies suggest that Alameda County has reduced physical movement by between 40 and 50 percent, which has been critical to flattening the curve. But we must stay the course. 

Modeling shows if the public was to increase mobility it would dramatically increase the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19. Stay home and save lives. When going out for essentials, the county public health officer recommends wearing a face cover. New N95 masks should be reserved for first responders and health care workers, but wearing old masks, bandanas, cloth masks and do-it-yourself masks will help protect our community.

The most important thing Alamedans can do to o help flatten the curve is maintain 6-feet of physical distance from other people, whenever possible. 

“With widespread community transmission of the disease, people must do everything they can to slow the spread,” the city stated in a press release that announced the latest figures.
