The Santa Clara County Health Department was joined by various other Bay Area county health departments in issuing a legal order calling for residents to stay home and shelter in place. Some essential services will continue, while others will be temporarily suspended as a result of the order. The order defines essential activities as only those necessary for the health and safety of individuals and their families. Service changes recently implemented as a result of the order include reassigning the Police Department’s parking enforcement community service officers temporarily to high-visibility patrol efforts around town. Enforcement of parking restrictions has been temporarily suspended, but they will still take enforcement action for any parking concerns that present an immediate hazard. In addition, enforcement of the Residential Permit Parking program is temporarily suspended.
