Because of the substantial progress our community has achieved in slowing the spread of COVID-19, an updated Shelter-in-Place Order went into effect at 12:01 am on Friday, May 22, and will remain in effect until the Health Officer amends or rescinds it. This new Order replaces the prior order, which went into effect on May 4, 2020. The new Order allows certain additional businesses and activities to resume, subject to restrictions to reduce transmission risk.
During this time, the County of Santa Clara is closing all non-essential services to the public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Most in-person services have been suspended and customers are asked to conduct business via phone or online channels. (Scroll down to see more details for each department.)
Essential services are defined as those necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community. All Santa Clara County hospitals and health clinics continue to remain open. Services provided by law enforcement and first-responders will continue, and many departments will operate with modified services to minimize in-person contacts.
This website will be regularly updated as new information become available.
