Help Berkeley build a stronger, more resilient community

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, August 03, 2021) - Join one of the many gatherings throughout Berkeley and connect with neighbors and help build a stronger, more resilient Berkeley tonight -- Tuesday, August 3.

With more than 58 registered gatherings happening across the city Berkeley neighbors can come together for an evening of block parties, BBQs, and ice cream socials. Staff from Police, Fire, other city departments, along with Berkeley's elected officials, will be visiting events throughout the City to say hello.

Find a gathering near you

National Night Out is a nationwide effort to make communities safer by building and strengthening relationships among neighbors. Strong neighborhoods help us become more resilient and improve our ability to recover after a disaster.

Tuesday's gathering is just one of many efforts supporting our Strategic Plan goal to create a resilient, safe, connected, and prepared city.

Enjoy community but make good decisions with pandemic in mind

As the Delta variant increases cases of COVID-19, consider risk factors based on your own household and be conscious of what risks you take.

If you or a member of your household is unvaccinated or immunocompromised, consider ways to further reduce your risk.

National Night Out events inherently pose less risk because they are outdoors, where the virus is much less likely to spread. You can reduce risk by keeping face coverings on, being at events where others are masked and avoiding crowds.

Of course, the most powerful way to reduce your risk is to get vaccinated – a safe, effective and powerful tool that continues to protect against severe illness, hospitalization and death. Appointments are widely available.

Find a vaccination site near you. If you haven’t gotten your essential second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, do so now to get the full protection.

Other steps you can take to be prepared

Come out on Tuesday, meet neighbors and City staff.
