Marin Joins Statewide Cautionary COVID-19 Step Back

Worsening statistics prompt regression from orange Tier 3 to red Tier 2

 

Marin County is one of 40 California counties tightening restrictions per State of California mandates in response to a surge of COVID-19 cases across the state and region.

Governor Gavin Newsom announced today that Marin was moved from orange to red, to use common virus status terminology. The step back comes just three days after the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notified local businesses and agencies about preemptive restrictions to stem the virus’ spread locally. But Monday, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) officially moved Marin from orange-colored Tier 3 (“moderate risk”) to the more restrictive red Tier 2 (“substantial risk”) on its Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Twenty-eight counties on Monday were moved into the purple Tier 1, the most restrictive status on the Blueprint scale, because of widespread virus spread. Marin is now one of 11 counties out of 58 in red Tier 2 status; 41 are in purple Tier 1.

The primary restrictions beginning Tuesday, November 17, are:

  • Retail establishments and indoor malls are allowed at 50% capacity
  • Office workspaces are allowed for essential workers; nonessential workers should work remote only
  • Restaurants are allowed outdoor service only
  • Bars and breweries closed unless serving full meals outdoors
  • Wineries are allowed outdoor service only
  • Personal care services are allowed indoors
  • Museums are allowed at 25% capacity
  • Places of worship are allowed at 25% capacity or 100 people (whichever is fewerLibraries are allowed at 50% capacity
  • Movie theaters are allowed at 25% capacity or 100 people (whichever is fewer)
  • Cardrooms are allowed outdoor service only
  • Other family entertainment centers are allowed outdoor service only
  • Gyms and fitness centers are allowed at 10% capacity
  • Indoor pools are not allowed

The change to Tier 2 does not affect Marin’s school reopening process. Local schools started re-opening on September 8 while the county was in the purple tier, and now 70% of Marin schools are open to some form of classroom-based learning. So far, there have been no cases of COVID-19 infection that occurred within school settings.
