6:05 pm
cases. today the county public health department issued this statement saying the magnitude of the change was above what would be expected as a result of the substantial expansion of testing and we have been placed on the state's monitoring list. the surge in cases is being attributed in part to a lack of face coverings and social distancing and because of an increase in infections in front line workers. now once the county is on the state's monitoring list for three straight days, it could be subject to state imposed restrictions and enforcement. outdoor dining was already supposed to be shutdown in alameda county after the county found out late friday it did not have state approval. some cities in the county however allowed businesses to serve outdoors anyway but some people we talk with say they understand the need to take every precaution. >> it's really hard right now. me and my girlfriend, we haven't been on a date in so long.
