As of April 18, 2022, Alameda County Continues COVID-19 Quarantine Requirements in Alignment with the CDC. Quarantine is required for residents who are not fully vaccinated and are close contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID, regardless of their symptom status. Alameda County is aligned with the State’s K-12 and childcare quarantine guidance, and this announcement does not impact children and youth in these settings.
While the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the U.S. Department of Labor has withdrawn its emergency temporary standard (ETS) to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace as an enforceable standard, it remains a proposed rule. OSHA strongly encourages the vaccination of workers.
