Residents of Alameda County can now get together, so long as they stay in their cars. New orders issued Monday by Alameda County's interim health officer, Dr. Erica Pan, outline safety requirements for "vehicle-based gatherings."
Events must be hosted, with a permit if it's required for the location; maximum attendance is 200 cars and entrance should be by invitation only. Congregations of more than 10 cars need to include on-site security.
“These gatherings are considered fairly low-risk, but only if all rules are followed,” Pan said in a statement.
The county also updated health orders Monday to allow customers to preorder goods and pick them up curbside or at the storefront. Manufacturing and warehouse activities are also allowed under certain conditions. The order does not include office workplaces.
