With Precautions, Larger Gatherings to be Allowed

The rules about social gatherings, live-audience events, and other activities are loosening as COVID-19 infections decline and vaccination rates increase in Marin County and statewide.

Beginning April 15, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has revised its private gatherings guidance to allow larger numbers of people to gather beyond the former three-household restriction. The allowable size of a gathering is tied to a county’s tier within the Blueprint for a Safer Economy

For Marin, currently in Tier 3 or orange status, the new guidance allows outdoor gatherings of up to 50 people while maintaining standard precautions such as the wearing of face coverings and social distancing. Indoor gatherings are strongly discouraged, but may occur with up to 25 people or 25% of the stated capacity of the indoor space (whichever is fewer) so long as windows and doors are open for ventilation and guests follow guidance for mask wearing, physical distancing, and food consumption.

Marin has a chance to enter the yellow Tier 4 next week if numbers continue to improve. That would allow greater numbers to gather both indoors and outdoors.

Coronavirus & Homelessness: Next Steps

COVID-19 has exacerbated local homelessness, which is another critical public health issue. The State of California’s Project HomeKey builds on the success of an earlier program and is the next phase in the response to protecting Californians experiencing homelessness who are at high risk for serious illness and are impacted by COVID-19. With state funding, the County of Marin now has two locations – existing buildings in Corte Madera and San Rafael – targeted to provide permanent supportive housing. The upcoming effort is being called HomeKey 2.0.

You have a chance to share your thoughts & ideas about this. The County is co-hosting an online series of community information sessions running through April 22. The goal is to review successes from the first HomeKey process (aka HomeKey 1.0) and the tentative process and timeline for HomeKey 2.0. Community members can find the schedule and details at www.marincounty.org/homekey or provide feedback through an online survey.
