- Media Statement on Right to Peaceful Protest: The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department issued a statement today, recognizing that “peaceful protest in response to the pain, anger and mourning due to deeply rooted inequities and systemic racism is a fundamental right that is critical to the health of our democracy.” The Health Department respectfully reminds everyone that our community is still facing the COVID-19 health crisis. Those engaged in peaceful protest are strongly encouraged to protect their own health and the health of others by using face coverings and, to the extent possible, maintaining social distancing. Those who have been in close contact with others at large gatherings are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 within three to five days of exposure, and to watch for any symptoms of COVID-19. There are numerous facilities across the county that offer free testing, which can be found at sccfreetest.org.
