Additional Businesses Greenlighted for June 1 Reopening
Marin County is moving into the next round of its COVID-19 pandemic response, with further reopenings under the shelter-in-place order. Outdoor retail, office space, outdoor dining, and curbside library services join child care and summer/sports camps as business sectors allowed to reopen to patrons and employees as of June 1 if guidelines from Marin County Public Health are followed. New guidelines for those industries to safely reopen are available at MarinRecovers.com.
Businesses preparing to reopen must complete a Site-Specific Protection Plan (SPP) to define how a business will reopen in a safe and clean manner for patrons and employees. A SPP plan template is available on MarinRecovers.com to guide businesses through the planning process. The template combines state-level guidance published in the California State Resilience Roadmap and local Marin County public health policies.
Since Marin began sequentially reopening the county on May 4, 19 sectors of business have been allowed to reopen with public health guidance. Guidelines for the next stage of openings will include outdoor religious services and indoor retail. Barring any surges in disease transmission, those are expected to be released by June 12 to begin June 15. An overview of Marin’s business reopenings to date can be accessed online.
Video statement from Dr. Willis regarding June 1 reopenings
Today, Dr. Willis provides and update on businesses that have been given the green light to reopen June 1, and how we balance the reopening process knowing that COVID-19 is still present in our community.
New Orders for Parks and Short-Term Lodging
Two new public health orders were issued today: (1) An order lifting all previous restrictions on motorized access to parks and beaches in Marin County; and (2) an order extending restrictions on short-term lodging facilities.
The new Parks order supersedes the May 15 order and provides local jurisdictions the authority to limit or prohibit motorized access as appropriate. In addition, portions of park facilities with high-touch equipment or that encourage gathering – including playgrounds, gym equipment, climbing walls, benches, picnic areas, dog parks, pools, and barbeque areas – will remain closed.
The other order limits short term lodging facilities – such as vacation rentals, short-term rentals, timeshares, hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, and other lodging facilities rented for 30 days or less – to cease all operations except to provide emergency housing in accordance with the order.
Both orders go into effect at 11:59 p.m. May 31 and will continue to be in effect, extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended.
