FAQs regarding protecting survivors of domestic and interpersonal violence or abuse during shelter in place.

In response to the current pandemic of novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), on March 16, 2020, the Alameda County Public Health Department issued a Shelter-In-Place Order requiring Alameda County residents, including the residents of Oakland, to remain in their homes except for certain designated exceptions; the Department has since extended shelter-in-place requirements through May 3, 2020.

In addition, on March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom issued an Executive Order requiring all California residents to shelter in place except for those working in or accessing certain essential businesses or services.

While Shelter in Place measures are necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, they can pose serious risks for residents who are experiencing domestic and/or interpersonal violence while sheltering in place.

These Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) are intended to clarify the current shelter-in-place requirements as they relate to residents facing domestic or other interpersonal violence. Oakland City Attorney, Barbara J. Parker and Alameda County District Attorney, Nancy O’Malley jointly answer these FAQs: https://www.alcoda.org/newsroom/files/FAQ-DV-and-Interpersonal-Violence.pdf
