The new business guidelines can be accessed at MarinRecovers.com and are located below the “Reopening Guidelines” header on each of the pages linked here:
- Outdoor faith-based and cultural ceremonies

OTHER HELPFUL RESOURCES:
- Health Officers Pledge Partnership during COVID-19: On June 1, the public health officers of Marin, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, and Santa Clara counties and the City of Berkeley issued a statement of commitment to continue to work in close collaboration on how to best protect the residents of the collective region. The statement comes after media speculation that the group of health officers were no longer working together on COVID-19 tracking or Shelter-In-Place revisions.
- County Leaders Respond to George Floyd Death: This week, several County leaders and departments paused to respond to the death of George Floyd and the protests that have followed. Below are a few of the statements issued this week:
- Personal Protective Equipment Available for IHSS caregivers: the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority of Marin wants to ensure care providers of registered IHSS recipients are equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect both the caregiver and the low-income older adults and persons with disabilities that they assist. More information: (415) 499-1024
- Health and Human Services plan for Office Reopenings: With the green light for office space to reopen across Marin, many Health and Human Services offices will reopen starting Tuesday, June 9. With COVID-19 still present, services are still offered virtually, and anyone in need of HHS services should consider conducting conversations by phone or email when possible. Residents with in-person appointments are required to wear face coverings and follow posted social distancing protocols in compliance with orders from Marin County Public Health. County staff will do the same.
