Contra Costa Health Services announced that it will tighten some restrictions for high-risk activities in response to a recent increase in the number of COVID cases and hospitalizations in the county.  

According to a press release issued Nov. 4, Contra Costa has amended its health orders to rein in some of the riskier indoor activities permitted under the orange tier in hopes of preventing outbreaks and keeping the county out of the red. Effective Friday, Nov. 6, select high-risk activities must be modified:

  •  Outdoor bars prohibited (except where allowed under restaurant guidance with drinks as part of a meal) 
  • Indoor dining allowed at a maximum of 25% occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer (down from 50% occupancy and 200 people) 
  • Indoor movie theaters can operate at a maximum 25% of occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer (down from 50% occupancy or 200 people) 
  • Religious services indoors allowed at a maximum 25% occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer (down from 50% occupancy or 200 people) 
  • Cardrooms and satellite wagering sites can't operate indoors (they previously could operate indoors at 25% capacity) 
  • Collegiate and professional sporting events: spectators limited to 25 people (maximum of three households) 

"We believe these measures are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID in our community," said the County's health officer Dr. Chris Farnitano.
