Latest Orders

California has moved Santa Clara County from the Red Tier to the Orange Tier in the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.” The Orange Tier allows more businesses and activities to resume. Changes are effective October 14, 2020. The County has outlined the changes and has them available on the Santa Clara County Public Health website. Please keep in mind that activities allowed under the Order are not necessarily safe. Certain activities, such as dining indoors and gathering, are still high risk. Continue to wear a mask, limit your contact with others, keep your distance from anyone outside your household, and get tested.⁣  

Free COVID-19 Testing

Testing is expanding throughout the County and is free and confidential for everyone. Everyone is encouraged to get tested, even those without symptoms. Anyone can be tested regardless of insurance or immigration status. Testing is one of the five key indicators the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department is using to assess whether and to what extent we can move away from the existing shelter-in-place restrictions that have been required to slow the spread of the virus.
