Berkeley Healthy Streets

Healthy Streets is a public health emergency response program that creates more opportunity for Berkeleyans to safely get exercise, sunshine, and fresh air during the pandemic. As the network expands, it will allow more Berkeleyans to get to essential jobs and services.

Using Healthy Streets

Healthy Streets will be marked with barriers and signs at block entrances, along with signs midblock reminding people to slow down, social distance, and cover their nose and mouth.

Healthy Streets is about everyone sharing the road. We ask everyone traveling on a Healthy Street to be courteous to others and stay aware of the environment for their safety.

When using Healthy Streets, please:

  • stay 6 feet away from people you don't live with
  • cover your face
  • share the road
  • observe a 15mph speed limit
  • watch for pedestrians, bikes, and cars
  • pass with care
  • if you're moving slowly, let others pass

Healthy Streets are not intended for in-person socializing. Do not gather in the streets with people you don't live with.

You should always wear a face covering when outside your home. 

Feedback survey

We want to hear about your experience with Healthy Streets. Share your thoughts by completing a brief feedback survey.
