Update on In-Classroom Instruction & Waver Application Process

Studies have shown that distance learning is not very effective for young students, so state and local agencies are working with schools to allow youngsters to benefit socially and academically in a safe and welcoming in-person environment. However, without a waiver, schools must begin the school year with distance learning.

On August 3, the state released detailed criteria for schools to apply for a waiver of the state’s distance learning mandate announced July 17. A waiver, if approved by a County Public Health Officer, would enable schools to provide in-person instruction assuming certain criteria have been met.

Waiver applications specific to Marin County will be distributed to school leaders on Friday, August 7 and due 14 days prior to when the school is requesting to open.

Read the full news release to find out more about what criteria needs to be met for a waiver of the state’s distance learning mandate.

This series of public service announcements are a result of a committee of Marin County students who formed together for a common purpose: to come together, collaborate and share information on how to be safe during COVID-19.  Share these videos and help reach a teen near you!

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 online.  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.
