The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors on March 10 declared a state of emergency for the County in an effort to address the potential spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

During its meeting, the supervisors emphasized that “everyone plays an important role” and said that while it is not a time for panic, residents are urged to be prepared. The Board also approved new “social distancing” guidelines (Spanish version) that recommend all “mass gatherings” (events) where 50 or more people are within arm’s distance of each other be postponed or cancelled.

As of March 10, Contra Costa Health Services had reported that there are now a total of 10 Contra Costa County residents who have tested positive for the virus. Of those, six had no recent history of travel outside of the U.S. or known contact with a confirmed case. In addition to these residents, three confirmed cases from outside of the County have been treated at hospitals within Contra Costa.

The City of Concord is continuing to follow the guidance of the state and county health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization.

As of March 10, the county has not advised local jurisdictions to close public facilities. However, the City is continuing to monitor the situation and will update its website and alert residents if it decides to cancel any programs or close any City facilities.The City has developed a COVID-19 web page to provide updates on our response to the evolving situation.
