A sign in the window of Valley Health and Acupuncture on Castro Street in Mountain View assures passersby the business is adhering to coronavirus cleanliness guidelines.
The six-county shelter-in-place order enacted March 17 to combat the coronavirus is working to combat spread of the disease, but it’s not enough, according to Santa Clara County health officer Dr. Sara Cody, who presided over a press briefing Tuesday (March 31).
Cody and health officers from Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Mateo counties as well as the city of Berkeley extended their stay-at-home directive from April 7 to May 3 and added new restrictions for residents and businesses. The updated order is more constrictive than the first.
