[ARCHIVED] County Passes Urgency Ordinance to Establish Fines for Health Order Violations

County Seal

On July 28, 2020, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors used its emergency powers under state law to pass Urgency Ordinance No. 2020-21 that establishes administrative fines for violations of public health orders pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Board unanimously determined the ordinance is necessary to provide an alternative to criminal enforcement of public health orders that will augment the ability of the County and other local agencies to ensure compliance with public health orders and combat the spread of COVID-19.

“Many people are following the Health Orders, but we need to increase our efforts together to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” said Supervisor Candace Andersen. “To further our progress to protect lives and reopen more local businesses and activities, we need a tool to send a fair message that everyone has to adhere to health orders to prevent the spread of the virus.”

See full Press Release (PDF), and Press Release in Spanish (PDF).

Read Ordinance No. 2020-21 (PDF) and Ordinance 2020-21 Spanish (PDF).

Contact the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office with reports of violations on its fraud line at 925-957-8608 or by email [email protected].
