Dear District 3 Community,

The County of Alameda is committed to keeping the public informed as we work together to stop the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).  

For up-to-date data and answers to frequently asked questions, visit ACPHD's dedicated COVID-19 web page.

It is an honor to serve you.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns that you may have regarding the district or Alameda County.

Supervisor, Third District 

Weekly Vaccine Update

On May 12, 2021, the CDC authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 12 and older. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be available through county and state partners, health care providers, pediatricians, and pop-up clinics at schools and other youth and family serving locations. Visit our new Youth Vax Facts page for more information. 

Updates from the Alameda County
Public Health Department

While the CDC has announced that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks in certain indoor settings, Alameda County is still in the Orange Tier.  All Alameda County workplaces must continue to follow Cal/OSHA’s standards, including current masking requirements since we cannot be less restrictive than the state.  

The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) encourages Alameda County residents to continue to exercise caution and wear masks in public, especially in crowded environments and if you do not know if others are fully vaccinated. 

Help us stop the spread of COVID-19 and continue to reopen Alameda County by getting vaccinated, wearing a mask in public, avoiding large crowded gatherings, and encouraging your loved ones to do the same. 

I am looking forward to gathering with the District 3 community in person again!
