Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test Required for Some Indoor Businesses September 22, 2021
All People Must Wear Masks in Indoor Public Settings

Latest Statewide Masking Order

Dec. 30, 2021:  With the highly contagious COVID-19 omicron variant circulating in Contra Costa, Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) announced a health order requiring everyone to mask in all indoor public settings.

Previously, there were limited exceptions to the indoor masking order. Public speakers and performers, and fully vaccinated groups of up to 100 people were allowed to remove their face coverings under controlled conditions.

The order, now requires all people in the county, regardless of vaccination status, to mask in public indoor settings, including but not limited to:

  • Business offices
  • Retail stores
  • Restaurants
  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Theaters
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Meeting rooms
  • State and local government facilities where services are provided to the public

Religious gatherings remain exempt from the masking requirement to the extent that removal of face coverings is necessary for participation in a religious activity. Also, in alignment with state guidance, performers at indoor live or recorded settings or events such as music concerts or theatrical plays are not required to wear masks.

COVID booster-shots for teens ages 16-17

Dec. 10, 2021: Contra Costa Health Services is now accepting booster-shot appointments at its COVID vaccine clinics for teens ages 16-17.

To book a vaccination appointment at a county-run clinic, visit our online scheduling page or call us at 833-829-2626. You can also look for appointments at local pharmacies and other providers on vaccines.gov.

COVID-19 VACCINEs FOR 5-11 Yr OLds

Nov. 3, 2021: Federal and state health officials have approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11, paving the way for an additional 92,000 county residents to get immunized.

Initial demand for the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine is expected to be high as eager parents seek protection for their children. Parents and caregivers should check with their child’s regular healthcare provider or local pharmacies about availability.

Parents and caregivers can schedule appointments for kids ages 5-11 at county-run vaccination sites starting in the afternoon of Thursday, Nov. 4.

The pediatric COVID-19 vaccine is one-third the dosage given to teens and adults and smaller needles will be used. Like adults, children ages 5-11 still must get two shots at least three weeks apart to get the maximum protection of the vaccine.

For more information, visit the Contra Costa Health Vaccines for Kids webpage.

COVID-19 BOOSTER VACCINE

Many people ages 16 and older are now eligible to get a COVID-19 booster for maximum protection against the virus. You can contact your healthcare provider or local pharmacy for a booster dose. Appointments through Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) are recommended and can be made online or by phone at 1-833-829-2626 Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. People without appointments are accepted as time and vaccine supply allows.

People may choose any of the three available COVID-19 vaccines for their booster dose, regardless of the vaccine they previously received. By scheduling a booster vaccine using this website, you are attesting to being eligible for a booster shot. People under the age of 18 are not eligible for booster shots unless immunocompromised. If you are not certain if you qualify please consult with your healthcare provider.

Pfizer

Booster shots are available to people ages 16+ if it has been at least six months since their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. People over the age of 18 may choose any brand of vaccine for their booster. Teens ages 16-17 can only get Pfizer for their booster.

Moderna

Booster shots are available to people ages 18+ if it has been at least six months since their second dose of the Moderna vaccine. People can choose any brand of vaccine for their booster.

Johnson & Johnson

Anyone 18 or older who received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine may receive a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson, Moderna or Pfizer vaccine if at least two months have passed since they were first vaccinated.

UPDATE 9/14/2021

COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination or Test Required for Some Contra Costa Businesses

The new order applies to businesses where people remove face coverings to eat or drink indoors, such as restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, and to gyms and other indoor fitness facilities, including yoga and dance studios, where patrons breathe more heavily due to exercise. From September 22, patrons of these businesses will need to show proof they are fully vaccinated to enter indoor areas or a negative COVID-19 test result from the past three days.
