This is Rick Delgado, owner of The Woof Pack, LLC Dog Walking and Pet Sitting, and of The Woof Blog. I have posted the latest order from the county of Alameda to shelter in place.
Please be assured that we are still providing dog walking and pet sitting service to those who need it in our service areas. While many have canceled their service due to the corona virus, as long as we are able, we will continue to provide service to our clients.
None of our pet sitters and dog walkers have any illness, and we are taking precautions to help prevent the spread of novel corona virus. We are following the CDC directives to:
- Avoid social gatherings
- Maintain at least 6 feet distance from others
- Wash hands frequently
- Avoid touching your face
- Sneeze or cough into a tissue or into your elbow
- Sanitize frequently used items and surfaces
We will continue to do our part, and we want you to know that if you need service, we are here for you. You can request service in our dog walking and pet sitting areas by clicking the link.
The shelter in place order can be read below.
New Order Directing Alameda County to Shelter at Home
As of Tuesday, March 31, 2020, the Shelter in Place Order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 has been extended through May 3, 2020.
Health Officer Order is in place that requires that most people stay home unless they are engaged in certain “Essential Activities” which are discussed in the full Health Officer’s Order.
A brief summary of the major changes in the order is here. All persons to shelter at their place of residence, other than to provide or receive essential services, which include:
- Performing tasks or activities essential to personal or family health and safety;
- Obtaining necessary services and supplies, including perishable goods food and medical supplies (a more detailed list in the Order);
- Engaging in outdoor activity;
You are also allowed to go outside—including to take care of pets, go on a walk, or exercise–so long as you do not congregate in a group and maintain at least six feet of distance between you and other people.
- Performing work providing essential products and services.
For most people, this means you and those you live with should remain at home. If you are sick, you should self-isolate, including, to the extent you can, from others you live with (more on that in the Order).
All non-essential businesses to cease non-exempt operations at physical locations.
Cessation of all non-essential travel.
