Summer Camp and Child Care Guidelines Now Available
Summer camp operators and child care businesses in Marin County now have the guidelines they need to safely proceed with reopening, beginning June 1. Marin County Public Health has shared best practices with child care establishments and summer camp operators that include mandated steps to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Those steps include protocols on social distancing, handwashing, face covering, surface cleaning and disinfecting, and other precautionary practices.
In addition to general public health hygiene guidelines, the requirements for childcare facilities and summer camps include limiting group sizes to 12 children or fewer and keeping the same groups together for a minimum of three weeks. Arrival times are to be staggered, and parents should avoid carpooling to such facilities. Most activities are to be conducted outdoors, where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is much lower. Shared equipment, such as sporting goods and toys, must remain within the same group of 12.

Please Recreate Responsibly This Holiday Weekend
Heading into Memorial Day weekend, Marin County Public Health and Marin County Parks are conveying a message of responsible recreation at a time of year that’s typically a festive springtime celebration mixed with a tribute to fallen military veterans.
Marin public health officials are reminding everyone about the importance of staying close to home and continuing with physical distancing, face covering, hand washing and hand sanitizing, and cleanliness measures.
Parking restrictions have loosened at some trailheads and recreational areas, but Marin County Parks and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office are enforcing social distancing rules on and near those areas. Many local parks within Marin cities and towns have also eased restrictions on motorized access, but potential park visitors are encouraged to verify park status before visiting.
