Stay At Home Order in effect for Marin County
A “Shelter at Home” order is in place for Marin County and other Bay Area counties now through April 7. This legal order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs.
The purpose of this is to keep people at home – except to complete the most essential activities, such as visiting a doctor or buying groceries for your household – in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19. The more we stay at home, the less chance we have of exposing ourselves to this virus and spreading it from one household to another. This order applies to people of all ages and backgrounds because anyone can be a carrier of the COVID-19 virus, even if they do not show symptoms.
We must adapt our daily routines for the health and safety of each other. To help you understand the restrictions of the order, please review the resources provided below:
