Pleasant Hill & Bay Area COVID-19 Response
Fellow travelers and Phill aficionados everywhere, the health and safety of our residents and visitors are our highest priorities. We are working closely with the City of Pleasant Hill and Contra Costa County to gather and share the latest developments about COVID-19 and travel directives.
The City Manager has issued a Proclamation of Local Emergency with the City Council expected to ratify the Proclamation at a special meeting at 4 p.m. Monday, March 23. Proclaiming a local state of emergency enables the City to access mutual aid and obtain reimbursement of eligible costs from the California Disaster Assistance Act for labor, materials purchased, and expended supplies related to this incident.
Contra Costa Health Services is the lead agency in this response to a public health emergency. Their website is updated frequently and is an excellent source of information on COVID-19 in Contra Costa County.
