Welcome...

Alameda County District 5 is a vibrant community comprised of diverse cultures and ethnicities. There are constant events, issues and activities that are taking place within the District at any moment in time.

The Fifth District includes the cities of Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Piedmont, and West Oakland, North Oakland, Rockridge, Grand Lake, and portions of the Fruitvale, Manzanita and Dimond District neighborhoods.

As your County Supervisor:

  1. I hope to make it easier for the residents to learn more about the District and other County Services;
  2. I will keep the residents of District 5 more informed about relevant issues - political, economic, and social - that impact the residents of our District; and
  3. I want to hear your ideas about what is working and what you think would make our communities better.

I will continue to work to bring together people who have a wealth of talent and creative resources to address our shared problems in our communities including access to health care, ending poverty, homelessness, crime, improving business retention, and employment.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any issues, ideas and concerns you want to share with me.

Yours Truly,

NEW REGIONAL STAY AT HOME ORDER

Effective December 7, 2020 - January 4, 2021, Alameda County is under a new Regional Stay at Home Order. All individuals living in the Region shall stay home or at their place of residence except as necessary to conduct essential activities, or as specifically permitted in this order.

Rather than waiting until ICU bed availability reaches critical levels and delaying closures that are inevitable, the Health Officers for the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara, as well as the City of Berkeley, have jointly decided to implement the State's Regional Stay Home Order now.

"Rising hospitalization rates across the region threaten not only our community members with severe COVID-19, but anyone who may need care because of a heart attack, stroke, accident, or other critical health need," said Alameda County Health Officer Dr. Nicholas Moss. "By acting together now we will have the greatest impact on the surge and save more lives."

Modified activities still allowed include:

  • Restaurant operations for take-out service, pick-up or delivery
  • Indoor retail operations permitted at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores.
  • Outdoor recreational facilities permitted only without any food, drink or alcohol sales.
  • Worship services and political expression are permitted outdoor only
  • Schools that are already open for in-person learning. No elementary school waivers
  • Non-urgent medical and dental care, child care and pre-K sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible with appropriate infectious disease preventative measures including 100% masking and physical distancing.
  • Leaving your home to work at or patronize any business or other entity that is allowed to be open, to care for friends or family members who require assistance, and with or without a specific destination in mind (for example, to walk your dog, to engage in physical recreation, or simply to get some fresh air) as long as you maintain physical distancing and comply with any other applicable public health directives.

Activities not allowed & facilities to be closed include:

  • All gatherings with members of other households
  • Hotels and lodging closed except for critical infrastructure support only
  • All travel, except for critical services
  • Indoor recreational facilities
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Personal care services
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Movie theaters
  • Wineries
  • Bars, breweries, and distilleries
