Seven Bay Area Jurisdictions to Update Shelter-in-Place Order
The Public Health Order for people to shelter-in-place safely in their homes will soon be extended until at least May 1. Public Health orders are issued by the respective Health Officers of each jurisdiction. The Bay Area is fortunate to have a group of dedicated public health leaders who are working together to address the interconnectedness of our region. We have said an extension might be expected as we work together to slow the spread of the COVID-19 disease. Additional details about the updated order will be available when it is finalized in the next day or two.
We will also be extending, strengthening, and clarifying the Public Health order to close parks. Unfortunately, even during a rainy weekend, residents and visitors congregated at popular recreational areas throughout Marin County.
