Recap of News and Updates from This Week

In case you missed it, here’s a digest of some COVID-19 related announcements from the week of June 15:

  1. Additional Reopening Guidelines Released: On June 19, Marin Recovers Industry Advisors provided new guidelines and the “green light” for businesses within additional sectors to begin plans to reopen, beginning June 29. Businesses in these areas must complete a site-specific protection plan that incorporates the new guidelines before reopening their business.  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:

MORE INFORMATION:

  1. Marin adopts the “Social Bubble” concept:  The model was adopted recognizing that -- after 100 days in the Shelter In Place environment -- individuals have a strong desire to socialize in-person with neighbors, extended family and friends. A social bubble is a stable group of 12 people or less who have collectively agreed to limit their in-person social activities to only each other for at least three weeks. Individuals belong to only one social bubble at a time, except for children who may belong to a second bubble related to a childcare or camp environment. The social bubble model provides guidelines to safely reconnect while COVID-19 continues to exist in our community.
  1. Marin Receives State Variance to Continue Reopening Plan: On Friday, the State of California granted Marin County a variance that allows more local control over when some activities restricted by COVID-19 pandemic may resume. The variance allows Marin County to move ahead with its plan for reopening at a pace that is appropriate for local conditions. The county’s timeline could change is community health indicators worsen, such as an increase in the number of new patients hospitalized with COVID-19.
  1. Guidelines Released for Schools to Resume in Fall: On June 18, Marin Public Health and Marin County Office of Education issued A Public Health Guided Return to Site-Based Classroom Instruction. The document provides guidelines to help facilitate and return to site-based classroom instruction and applies to all Marin County educational institutions, including public, private, independent and parochial TK-12 schools. The guidelines also include protocols for COVID-19 related scenarios and enforcing health and safety practices of hand washing, physical distancing, appropriate face coverings, and health screenings.
  1. Marin Public Health releases NEW Coronavirus Website: Marin Public Health unveiled a new look to its “Coronavirus in Marin” website (at MarinHHS.org/coronavirus). The new homepage has been overhauled to showcase some of the most popular content on the site, including data, testing information, face covering guidance, and current public health order.
