The public health officers of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties, with the City of Berkeley, announced a legal order directing their respective residents to shelter at home for three weeks starting March 17. The order limited activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs. On March 31, Health Officers extended this previous stay-at-home order through May 3, 2020, in order to preserve critical hospital capacity across the region. It also limited more activities.
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.
