State Releases New Guidelines for Professional Sports, Amusement Parks

Yesterday, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released new guidelines related to reopening of California’s amusement and theme parks and live professional sporting events at outdoor stadiums and racetracks.  The new guidance allows sporting and amusement venues to reopen in limited capacities if the county in which the venue resides has achieved the appropriate Tier 3 or Tier 4 status, depending on the size of the venue. Mandatory face coverings, advanced ticketing, and adapting seating and waiting lines to accommodate physical distancing are just a few of the reopening policies.  Read the Amusement parks and theme parks or Sporting Events at Outdoor Stadiums and Racetracks guidance for full details, or review CDPH’s news release for an overview of the changes.

Fire season isn’t over just yet, Marin. The National Weather Service has issued another Red Flag Warning for higher elevation areas of Marin County from 10 p.m. Wednesday, October 21 to 8 a.m. Friday, October 23. A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected during this time frame for strong wind gusts and hot, dry conditions.
