VIDEO: Dr. Matt on Masks 

Marin County Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis says in this video that face covering has been an important part of the COVID-19 response and “stop the spread” routine for more than a year, and many will continue to wear them even if they’re not technically required. Listen as he clarifies two key points, answering questions that continue to pop up. 


State is Calling the Shots 

As of the June 15 statewide reopening, Marin County no longer has any local COVID-19-related health orders that restrict activities in residents’ lives or in business operations. Marin is now fully aligned with the State of California’s new Beyond the Blueprint framework. See the full executive order, the fact sheet on the Beyond the Blueprint webpage, and the latest guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). 

Sick Leave for COVID-Exposed Employees 

Businesses in unincorporated Marin County with 25 employees or more will be financially covered through reimbursements as they pay sick leave for COVID-exposed workers through September 30. The Board of Supervisors passed an urgency ordinance to help support efforts to reduce spread of COVID-19 and assist sick workers who need to quarantine and miss work.  

In March 2021, California Senate Bill 95 required employers to pay supplemental sick leave to reduce chances that workers would go to work while sick. To further reduce those chances, federal tax credits for businesses were recently extended through September 30 via the American Rescue Plan.   

Funding Available for Food-Related Businesses 

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has a Restaurant Revitalization Fund for restaurants, bars, food trucks, caterers, and related businesses to help them stay up and running during the pandemic. Even though the economic reopening is in full swing now, the program still provides  funding equal to pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023. Details are on the SBA website
