Bay Area Counties Recommend Masking Indoors for Everyone    

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our community, Marin has joined other Bay Area Counties in recommending the use of masks by vaccinated individuals, while unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask in indoor public spaces. This extra precautionary measure is due to heightened concerns in relation to the highly transmissible Delta variants.  Marin is averaging 15 new cases per day, with a daily case rate of 4.4 per 100,000 and rising.   

People who visit indoor settings such as grocery stores, retail stores, theatres, and family entertainment centers should consider wearing masks. Additionally, businesses are highly encouraged to implement universal masking requirements for their patrons, regardless of their vaccination status, as a means of protecting both employees and customer.  

Workplaces must comply with Cal/OSHA requirements and fully vaccinated employees are encouraged to wear masks indoors if their employer has not confirmed the vaccination status of those around them. Fully vaccinated people are well protected and receiving the vaccine remains our highest form of defense against COVID-19 and its  variants.
