COVID-19 Update and Interim Guidance
A presumptive case of COVID-19 was detected in an Alameda County resident who had contact to a case in another jurisdiction. The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) is taking appropriate action. Cases of COVID-19 without travel history or links to known cases have been reported in our region and across the United States. These cases of COVID-19 in the Bay Area indicate local community transmission, and warrant public health and healthcare providers in Alameda County to continue preparing for increasing numbers of identified cases and a surge of patients.
On February 27, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated guidance for evaluating persons under investigation (PUI) for COVID-19. For more information, please see the full ACPHD Health Update:
