As of today, the Contra Costa County Health Department reports that 147 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the county. This is a 70% increase since Tuesday! It is important to remember that the virus can take up to 14 days to incubate before the person becomes ill. As testing increases and the virus incubates in more people, this number will increase. This is why social distancing is so critically important to prevent the further spread of the virus. The answer to the most asked question in Town is YES…there are people who live and work in Moraga who have COVID-19.

No one likes to shelter-in-place and, as social people, no one wants to distance themselves from others. Want it to end sooner?? It is only through strict adherence to the order and scrupulously following the social distancing guidelines that we will get back to normal.

Remember, this is not the time for kids to go on play dates with friends, picnic in the park or for you to have coffee or “small” dinner parties with neighbors. Think of it this way…what’s the harm in having dinner with friends…except that you are now connected with the infected friend of your neighbor’s son’s girlfriend’s Mom.  Break the chain – minimize your risk and the risk to your family - flatten the curve so that we have enough healthcare resources to treat those who are sick.

For more information, you can go to or call the Health Department at 844-729-8410. The Health Department has the most current and accurate information about COVID-19 and is your very best resource for information.

Both Moraga Police and Moraga-Orinda Fire personnel continue to work and are on duty to protect our community. They also need to protect themselves and are taking precautions such as wearing gloves, masks or protective gowns to prevent exposure to the virus. If you call for assistance with someone who is sick, please provide the Dispatcher with information about the person and describe the symptoms. This will allow the first responders to properly prepare so they can stay safe and remain available to respond to other emergencies.

There are many other people out there who are working in essential businesses to provide food, services and supplies to people in our community. Please take a moment to thank them when you see one of them. Also, please patronize our local businesses and help them survive these challenging times. Check for a list of local restaurants and businesses that are open to serve you.

Please stay safe and healthy and help us to keep Moraga a safe community.
