County public-health officials remind residents to wear face coverings whenever they leave their homes. Substantial scientific evidence shows that, when combined with physical distancing and other health-and-safety practices like handwashing and regular disinfection of surfaces, wearing face coverings allows us to resume additional activities in the safest possible way.

Many Alameda small businesses, nonprofits and renters are experiencing financial impacts from COVID-19. Alameda Strong is a community fund where individuals and businesses can help provide critical support to keep our local businesses in business. A $50 donation gets the donor a T-shirt and a $150 donor receives a hoodie. Visit www.alamedastrong.org to donate and learn more.
