[ARCHIVED] County Delays Reopening Timeline

Graphic announcing timeline delay

Contra Costa Health Services has announced that it will postpone its COVID-19 reopening timeline.

Prior to this announcement, CCHS had planned to allow bars, personal services not involving close contact with the face, indoor dining, gyms and fitness centers, limited indoor leisure activities and museums, and hotels for tourism and individual travel to reopen on July 1. These businesses and activities will remain closed in Contra Costa until county data indicate that the spread of the virus has slowed, as measured by at least a week of stable case numbers, hospitalizations and percent of tests that are positive. 

The seven-day average number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals in the county has increased by 75% from June 15 to June 29. The seven-day average number of newly identified COVID-19 cases has increased from 38 a day to 87 a day. The percentage of COVID-19 tests that came back positive has also increased from 4% to 6%. This suggests the change is not simply due to more testing, but a true increase in community spread.

For more information, visit: https://www.coronavirus.cchealth.org. Residents can also call the Contra Costa County Coronavirus Call Center at (844) 729-8410 daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
