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Both orders go into effect at 11:59 p.m. May 31 and will continue to be in effect, extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended.
