OTHER HELPFUL RESOURCES:
- New Health Order Lifts Ban on Motorized Access at Parks: On Friday, a new public health order was issued lifting all previous restrictions on motorized access to parks and beaches in Marin County, beginning June 1. 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.
- Short-Term Lodging Facilities Restriction Extended: On Friday, a new public health order was issued, extending restrictions on 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. These facilities are to cease all operations except to provide emergency housing in accordance with the order. The order goes into effect June 1 and will continue until extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended.
- Public Health Urges COVID-19 Testing for All Workers: Marin County Public Health is calling on all businesses and employees working during the COVID-19 pandemic – especially where workers have frequent contact with the public – to utilize free COVID-19 testing options. Even people without symptoms can have COVID-19 and infect others. While voluntary, testing is an important step in containing COVID-19 and protecting people who live, work or interact with essential service workers. In addition to testing options available through medical providers across the county, free testing is available by appointment at two locations in San Rafael:
