Mask Mandate Reinstated Today 

Face coverings are back: Today, a new face covering mandate went into effect for Marin County, requiring everyone to wear a mask in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.  

This is a return to the same face covering guidelines that were in place November 1, when Marin County was last under a mask mandate. California Department of Public Health provided an exemption to its statewide masking mandate, allowing Marin to reissue its recent indoor face covering restrictions in place of the state’s proposed guidelines.  

For most business environments, masks are required.  The re-issued local mandate carves out some limited exemptions for stable cohorts in select closed settings, largely affecting things like gyms, fitness centers, (some) office settings, employee commuter vehicles, religious gatherings, and college classes with a consistent cohort of 100% fully vaccinated individuals and where children are not present. In these limited settings, individuals are exempt from the indoor face covering requirement IF the organizer / host / employer assumes the responsibility that the following circumstances are met:    

  1. There are no more than 100 individuals present; and   

  1. The host, employer, or organizer commits to:    

  • Verifying (via vaccination documentation) that all individuals present are fully vaccinated; and   
  • Maintaining a list of individuals present; and   
  • Controlling access to the indoor setting, ensuring the setting is not open to the general public. 

Any gym, fitness center, office setting, commuter vehicle, religious gathering or college class that is unable to fulfill the full criteria must continue requiring use of masks indoors.  

The requirement to wear masks in indoor settings still applies to restaurants, retail stores, salons/barbershops, and other indoor business environments where members of the public rotate in and out daily. The exemption only applies to those settings where there is a known and stable cohort of people inside. Most indoor public spaces in Marin do not qualify for the exemption.  

Be prepared: carry a mask with you and be prepared to comply with a business’s posted guidelines.  

We encourage you to review the reinstated masking order carefully and to also visit our Masking Page for more guidance regarding face coverings in Marin County, including frequently asked questions.
