The city of Berkeley plans to release an updated COVID-19 health order on Tuesday, Nov. 17 that imposes new restrictions on allowed activities. The order will align local rules with new State of California restrictions that place Berkeley in the “purple” – or most restrictive – tier of the statewide COVID-19 framework. Several business sectors will be required to close or modify operations starting Wednesday, Nov. 18 to align with statewide purple tier rules.

UC Berkeley will be reviewing the new orders closely and announcing any changes to operations as quickly as possible.
