Indoor retail shopping , business offices , outdoor museums and all pet grooming are among the businesses that will reopen in Contra Costa County under the latest shelter-in-place order released today. The order also permits services that don’t require close customer contact, such as housekeeping , car washes , and plumbing .
 
The new health order also allows small outdoor social gatherings , as well as childcare and camps for all children, not just children of essential and allowed workers. Those childcare services and camps still can only have up to 12 children in stable cohorts.
 
Libraries can reopen for curbside pickup service and protests of up to 100 people will also be permitted. Religious services will be able to resume on June 15, although with some limitations. At Supervisor Andersen’s urging, in the coming days, the County will be consulting with the State about reopening swimming pools and outdoor dining .

Countywide Curfew Order Due to Civil Unrest
Stay Indoors from 8pm to 5am
The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors has unanimously passed a proclamation of local emergency in response to civil disturbances that have disrupted peaceful protests in the County following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. The Board also adopted an order imposing a curfew in Contra Costa County due to civil unrest to begin today at 8:00 p.m. The curfew requires people in the County to stay indoors from 8:00 pm until 5:00 a.m. the following day, until further notice.

Supervisor Andersen and the other Supervisors expressed their strong support for the right of citizens to assemble, march and freely express their opinions. However, they do not want to see these legitimate protests hijacked by individuals using it as a shield to commit vandalism, the destruction of property, violence and theft.

The Order does not apply to peace officers, firefighters, and National Guard deployed to the area, individuals traveling to and from work, people experiencing homelessness and without access to a viable shelter, and individuals seeking medical treatment.
