Updates from the Alameda County
Public Health Department

Yesterday, a new indoor masking order easing some requirements in indoor settings where everyone is fully vaccinated. Eligible settings must be controlled spaced not open to the general public, including offices, gyms, religious gatherings, and other organized gatherings where a group gathers on a regular basis. Indoor masking orders remain in effect for public settings, such as bars, restaurants, stores, and K-12 school settings. 

Under the new Health Officer Order, participating businesses, organizations, or hosts must verify that all patrons, employees, and attendees are fully vaccinated before allowing people to participate without face coverings inside their facilities. These facilities are limited to no more than 100 persons present.  

An employer or host may only accept the following as proof of vaccination:  

  • A Vaccination Card issued by the CDC or a foreign governmental jurisdiction which includes the name of the person vaccinated, the type of vaccine provided, and the date(s) the dose or doses were administered 
  • A photo or copy of a Vaccination Card either as a hardcopy or stored on a phone or electronic device 
  • Documentation of vaccination from a health care provider 
  • A personal digital COVID-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California and available by going to or similar documentation issued by another state, local, or foreign governmental jurisdiction  

Everyone's identity must be confirmed using government-issued photographic identification, such as a driver’s license or passport
