Good afternoon Morgan Hill Community,

This afternoon Santa Clara County Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody announced that the County’s dramatically increasing case counts make clear that the County will be moved to the State’s Red Tier next Tuesday, November 17th. Unless the current surge is quickly brought under control, the County expects to be moved to the Purple Tier in the next few weeks. 
Dr. Cody and most of her colleagues around the Bay Area will be issuing local orders today requiring the closure of indoor dining and imposing limits on certain other high-risk activities. The new restrictions on activity in Santa Clara County will take effect on Tuesday, November 17th at 12:01 a.m. 

The County Health Officer urges residents to follow strict adherence to safety protocols, including:
  • staying home when possible
  • minimizing interaction with people outside one’s household
  • maintaining social distance (6 feet minimum)
  • wearing face coverings
  • moving as many activities outdoors as possible
  • GETTING TESTED regularly
