Additional business closures by Governor Newsom in Marin County

A spike in confirmed COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the State of California has prompted Governor Gavin Newsom to close indoor operations of several industries effective immediately

At a July 13 press conference, the Governor announced the immediate closure of the following industries for all counties:

  • indoor dining at restaurants
  • wineries and tasting rooms
  • movie theaters
  • family entertainment centers
  • zoos and museums
  • card rooms
  • bars (including both indoor and outdoor operations of bars, brewpubs, breweries and pubs).

In addition, Marin County and more than 30 other counties on the state’s watch list are required to close additional industries, including indoor gyms and fitness centers, indoor worship services, indoor office space for noncritical sectors, indoor personal care services, indoor hair salons and barbershops, and indoor malls.

Businesses affected by the announcement are to remain closed until the restrictions are lifted. In his remarks, the Governor estimated that 80% of Californians would be impacted by the overall closure decision.

In Marin, this effects office space for non-critical services, indoor hair salons and barbershops, and indoor malls. Noncritical services are defined as non-essential businesses as listed in Section 15.f of the current shelter-in-place order. In addition, wineries, tasting rooms, bars, brewpubs, breweries and pubs that did not provide on-site dining prior to the March sheltering order must close all operations, including outdoor settings.

Marin joined the state’s watch list July 2 because of a rise in local confirmed COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, partially influenced by the outbreak at San Quentin State Prison. On July 5, local indoor dining establishments were forced to stop operating as a result of the watch list classification.

Fewer Marin industries are impacted by the announcement due to Marin’s cautious approach and pace to reopening local businesses. On June 26, Marin slowed its reopening pace, pausing some planned reopenings and stopping additional reopenings until further notice.

The updated status of businesses and industries reopenings in Marin County can be found at MarinRecovers.com. Additional details about the Governor’s directive can be found at COVID19.CA.gov.

UPDATED INFO! Reporting Public Health Order Violations

We know this is a challenging time. Those wishing to report a public health order violation by a business can submit their concerns to SIPViolation@marincounty.org. Please include the business name, address, and as much detail as possible regarding the perceived health order violation. Reports will be forwarded to the appropriate governing agency for review and investigation.

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. 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.
