Because of the substantial progress our community has achieved in slowing the spread of COVID-19, a revised Shelter-in-Place Order goes into effect at 12:01 am on Friday, June 5, and will remain in effect until the Health Officer amends or rescinds it. This updated Order modifies the current order, which went into effect on May 22, 2020. The June 5 Order allows several new categories of businesses and activities to reopen, subject to specific conditions and limitations. It also keeps key restrictions in place, requiring people to stay in their homes except when engaging in certain essential or allowed 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.
This website will be regularly updated as new information become available.
