How is compliance about shelter in place and physical distancing being ensured?
21
The City of Oakland is educating the public about the updated Shelter in Place order through communications, signage at parks about closures and physical distancing, and placing caution tape around facilities that are closed to the public. The Oakland Police Department developed a COVID-19 team to respond to Shelter in Place issues, including noncompliance with physical distancing. Currently, these efforts are focused on education to ensure compliance with the health order.

23
How do I report noncompliance?
24
To report noncompliance with the Shelter in Place Order: OPD's public email and phone number to report noncompliance is covid19compliance@oaklandca.gov, 510-238-2917. Alameda County has also launched Covid19compliance@acgov.org as a new email for compliance concerns and complaints re: non-essential businesses and non-essential activities in violation of the Alameda County public health order.

Are face coverings required?
27
Bay Area health officials are recommending residents cover their nose and mouth with cloth when leaving home for essential travel such as to doctor appointments, grocery shopping or pharmacy visits. Read the complete Press Release here: http://www.acphd.org/media/564285/press-release-20200402.pdf. The face coverings do not have to be hospital grade but need to cover the nose and mouth. For example, bandanas, fabric masks and neck gaiters are acceptable. Fabric covers and bandanas can be washed and used again. We do not recommend that the public use medical masks (N-95 or surgical masks), which are in limited supply and must be preserved for our health care workers and pre-hospital transport providers.
