The City of Berkeley health officer, along with those from six Bay Area Counties, announced on Monday plans to extend the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order through May. The previous order, due to expire on May 3, will be replaced by a new order that is expected to largely keep current restrictions in place. City officials indicated there will be limited easing of specific restrictions for a small number of lower-risk activities and that the details would be available later this week. Once the new order is published, we will advise the campus community about what this means for the campus community, including whether any campus directives will be impacted by any easing of restrictions.
