On August 2, 2021, Marin County joined Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and the City of Berkeley in issuing Health Orders requiring masks indoors by all people -- vaccinated or unvaccinated -- out of an abundance of caution due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases. This Order requires all individuals to wear face coverings when indoors in workplaces and public settings, with limited exemptions, and recommends that businesses make face coverings available to individuals entering the business.
Positive cases still need to be reported to Marin County at COVIDemail@example.com. If vaccinated people are exposed to a positive case, they do not need to quarantine, they just need to monitor for symptoms.
If unvaccinated people are exposed to a positive case, they still need to quarantine for 10 days or they can test after day 5 and if test is negative on day 7, they can end quarantine and watch for symptoms.
We understand the devastating economic impacts of COVID-19 on our community.
