Contra Costa County residents may again enjoy outdoor swimming pools, outdoor seating at restaurants and dog parks under an updated health order. The order, effective at 5 p.m. on June 5, also allows for outdoor religious services of up to 100 people, indoor religious services of up to 12 people, use of outdoor picnic and barbecue spaces, and overnight camping for people belonging to the same household. 

Because of the progress made in the fight against COVID-19, Contra Costa health officers feel confident opening additional businesses and activities. 

The State of California has determined that while counties can move slower than state in reopening, they cannot move more quickly. The openings announced today bring Contra Costa County in closer alignment to state guidelines. It also aligns with other Bay Area counties taking similar steps.
