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,

ALAMEDA COUNTY MOVES TO THE YELLOW TIER

On June 8, 2021, the State announced that Alameda County has met the requirements to move to the Yellow Tier, and effective June 9, activities and businesses permitted in the Yellow Tier per the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy may resume or expand their operations.

Alameda County has an adjusted daily new case rate per 100,000 residents of 1.5, a testing positivity rate of .7 percent, and a health equity quartile positivity rate of 1.3 percent.

The decline in cases and mortality shows that the best protection against COVID-19 is vaccination. All currently available vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available. When you are ready, get vaccinated. If you missed your second dose, you should still complete your vaccination series.

Businesses may want to use this week to plan for the broad reopening that the State will allow starting June 15. Now through June 14, businesses and activities permitted to open or expand under the State’s Yellow Tier must continue to comply with the State's Industry Guidance for that tier: https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance/. Additional workplace resources can be found here https://covid-19.acgov.org/recovery and resources for Alameda County workers are available here https://covid-19.acgov.org/worker-resources.

All workplaces governed by Cal/OSHA must follow their current standards and the updated standards starting June 15, including masking requirements for employees.
