Reporting Public Health Order Violations

We know this is a challenging time. Those wishing to report a public health order violation by a business should contact the following:

  • Concerns about possible violations of the Health Order for any facilities or businesses where food is handled, processed or sold (including grocery stores), can be reported by contacting Marin County Environmental Health at (415) 473-6907.
  • Concerns about other business violations of the Health Order can be reported by calling the local law enforcement’s non-emergency line in the particular jurisdiction in which the non-compliance is taking place.  Visit Marin Recovers Status list for information on business openings and guidelines and the current health order for information on face covering requirements, shelter-in-place and more. Please do not call 911 unless you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency. 

Keep in mind that the goal of the order is to educate and keep our community safe. While violations of the public health order are misdemeanors, making arrests continues to remain a measure of last resort for local law enforcement. It will only be considered after all education and voluntary compliance efforts have failed. Be a role model and follow the order while encouraging others to do the same. If you see a business out of compliance, you can speak directly to the owner, and offer the link or a copy of the COVID-19 Site-Specific Protection Plan as well as information about the Marin Recovers website. We’re all in this together and we all need to do our part.
