Beginning June 15, 2021, California will move Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and eliminate the color-coded tier system for counties. This means restrictions related to business and social activities will ease, however things still won’t look exactly like they did pre-pandemic. Capacity limits for businesses will end, although masking requirements will continue to remain in many settings.
This page summarizes the State of California’s requirements and guidance, which apply to Marin County and all of California. Marin County remains aligned with the State of California and does not have any additional restrictions.
Overview of this page:
- Masking Requirements and Guidance

Masking requirements and guidance
- Masks are required in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public), regardless of a person's vaccination status.
- Read Marin's August 2 Health Order for information on additional requirements and exceptions for face coverings indoors.
- Masks are strongly encouraged, especially in crowded environments where it may be difficult to distinguish someone's vaccination status.
Sample "please wear a mask" signs are available for businesses to print and post on entrances to help ensure compliance by employees and customers.
Mask Requirements for Business Owners / Operators
Individuals, businesses, venue operators, hosts, and others responsible for the operation of indoor public settings must:
(a) Require all employees, contractors, visitors, and patrons to wear face coverings in all indoor settings, regardless of their vaccination status; and
(b) Post clearly visible and easy-to-read signage at all entry points for indoor settings to communicate the masking requirements to all patrons.
In addition, those responsible for indoor public settings are strongly encouraged to provide face coverings at no cost to individuals required to wear them.
