MarinRecovers and Zoom In Tomorrow!

Supervisor Katie Rice 


To all District 2 Residents,

With the May 4 modification to the Marin’s stay at home order, we are taking the first steps to safely and progressively reopen our economy and communities, recognizing that COVID-19 is present and will continue to be present and a threat for some time to come. The May 4 modifications also came in parallel with our public health officer and health care community’s assessment that we are close to having the tools/infrastructure (testing, contact tracing, surge capacity, monitoring capacity, community member compliance with social distancing) we need in place to manage the spread, contain outbreaks, protect our most vulnerable, and provide appropriate care for those who do become sick.

Read more below about Marin’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan including and the launch of Marin Recovers Industry Advisors -- a partnership between Public Health, local government, business and community leaders to help develop guidelines for how various sectors could operate safely in COVID-19 environment.

Finally, an invitation to join me tomorrow, May 7, at 5pm for our second District 2 “Zoom-In.” I’ll start the session answering your questions coming in regarding the new Public Health Order and the Marin Recovers planning effort. Then I’ve invited Renee Goddard, Mayor of Fairfax, and Stephanie Hellman, Fairfax Councilmember to talk about how Fairfax is weathering COVID-19 and what their community is doing to support one another and look to the future. The Zoom will last about a half hour. Instructions for joining are at end of this newsletter. Hope you can join us!

Each stage of recovery has criteria that must be met before moving to the next phase to continue the successful mitigation of COVID-19 while building the infrastructure needed to move forward.
