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.

 

 

Update From State: Final Tier Appeal Decision Announced Tomorrow

Marin County business leaders, residents, and even County government officials are eager to hear Governor Gavin Newsom’s noontime press conference Tuesday when an expected announcement clarifies whether Marin is among the counties permitted to move their local economies from Tier 1 risk status to a less-restrictive Tier 2.

 

Last week, Marin Public Health appealed California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) September 8 decision to hold Marin County in Tier 1 status on the State’s Blueprint for a Safe Economy monitoring framework. Marin officials were told by CDPH that an announcement about Marin’s tier status could be expected September 13 or 14, but were notified Monday that a determination wouldn’t come until Tuesday. Given Marin’s Tier 2 -worthy COVID-19 data, many business organizers on Monday alerted their memberships about a possible graduation to the next reopening phase.

 

If Marin is greenlighted to move to Tier 2, the primary changes allowed under the state public health order, or red status, would include:

 

In addition to the Governor’s press conference, final confirmation of Tier status will be posted on MarinCounty.org and MarinRecovers.com tomorrow afternoon.  For the latest figures, see Marin County Public Health’s COVID-19 surveillance page.

Have questions?  We are here to help.  Our call center is available Monday through Friday, from 9:30am to 12-noon and 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

Reporting Businesses in Violation of Public Health Orders

Those wishing to report a public health order violation by a business can submit their concerns online.  Please include as much detail as possible regarding the perceived health order violation.  Photos and other documentation welcome, too.  Know that state protocols for reopening change frequently, so consult the  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 and related enforcement ordinance is to educate and keep our community safe. While violations of the public health order are misdemeanors, issuing citations or 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.
