On June 18, 2020, the Alameda County Health Department released a revised Shelter in Place Order (20-14a - Appendix A), which now allows customers to bring their own bags, mugs, or other reusable items from home if they do not require handling by employees. Under the new order, customers can place their reusable bags in carts and/or baskets, but must bag their own groceries. Berkeley has the additional requirement that items brought from home may not be placed on any surfaces.
In addition, the State Executive Order issued in April that suspended portions of the statewide single-use carryout bag ban has expired.
