Marin County COVID-19 Status Update: July 28, 2020

The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is now publishing five days a week (Monday through Friday) and as needed, in order to share important news and resources in our battle against COVID-19 and to keep our economy running. We remain here for you.

Dominican University Partners with County on Contact Tracing Education

As many as 20 local university students will have a timely online lab class assignment starting this fall semester: Help Marin County Public Health conduct contract tracing of COVID-19 transmission and lend much-needed assistance to specialists on the front lines of the pandemic. 

This fall, Marin’s only four-year university is offering a public health contact tracing course in which students will get to work remotely with Marin County Public Health professionals. Contact investigation and tracing involves discovering a person’s associations with other individuals who have tested positive for a disease and inform them of the need to be tested for possible exposure.

Eviction Moratorium OK’d Through September 30

For the fourth time, the Board of Supervisors extended a countywide residential eviction moratorium because of the widespread economic hardship being experienced during COVID-19.

The Board is standing firm in its support of a ban on residents who experience a sudden loss of income tied to the pandemic. If a tenant has not made a timely rent payment, the landlord cannot evict if the tenant provides notice within 30 days after the rent was due that the tenant is unable to pay because of financial impacts related to the public health emergency.

Reporting Businesses in Violation of Public Health Orders

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.  Photos and other documentation welcome, too. 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.
