Pandemic Response Activities Updated to Operate at Stage 3
In light of the termination of the Stay Home Order and the Blueprint for a Safer Economy on June 15, 2021, the City of Milpitas will move to operate at Stage 3 (Medium Response) of the Pandemic Management Plan. Operating at Stage 3 translates to the Office of Emergency Management staffing the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) virtually to continue enhanced monitoring, and coordination with the County, who is the lead in Public Health operations. Additionally, the City’s Pandemic Management Team will keep working to prepare for continuity of City operations and provide information and take actions that will help reduce the potential risks.
The City’s response will enable staff to fulfill the four priorities of the Pandemic Response Plan:
- Protecting Our People: Ensuring the safety and well-being of our
- Continuity of Essential City Operations: Sustaining delivery of critical City
- Effective Communication: Ensuring timely and consistent communication internally with our employees and externally with our community.
- Support the Santa Clara County Public Health Department: Provide resource and communication support to assist the County Public Health Officer, the County, and all our partners in mutual commitment to protect the people of our
The aforementioned priorities will guide the response to the continuing threat posed by COVID-19 because the health of employees, residents, and businesses remains the highest priority for the City of Milpitas. The City’s shift to Stage 3 is aligned with recent actions by CDPH, Cal OSHA and the Governor.
