Shelter-in-Place Restrictions Eased with New Allowable Activities 


Several of Marin’s Shelter-in-Place restrictions will be eased beginning Monday, June 1 - thanks to 

the collective action our community has taken. Highlights of the changes are outlined below and the full order, along with appendices, is available on the COVID-19 County webpage. 


Starting Monday, the following activities will be allowed to resume in Marin: summer camps, office space, outdoor retail, outdoor dining and curbside pick-up for libraries. Greater access to Marin’s parks and beaches will also be allowed beginning June 1. The new Parks Order lifts all previous restrictions on motorized access to parks and beaches in Marin County, but continues to allow individual jurisdictions the authority to limit or prohibit motorized access as appropriate.  


An overview of allowed businesses in Marin and a list of targeted opening dates for those not currently open, can be found on Marin Recovers.


As businesses are allowed to open, they will need to create and post a COVID-19 Site Specific Protection Plan with state and local health policies. The plan will need to include accommodations for social distancing requirements, disinfectant protocols, and employee training for the new reopening conditions. For those sectors not yet allowed to open, but are looking to prepare in advance, details can be found at Marin Recovers. 


Marin has identified five indicators for assessing progress of containing COVID-19 in Marin: cases and hospitalizations, hospital capacity, testing, case investigation/contact tracing, and personal protective equipment. These indicators will help inform decisions as we assess whether and to what extent we can move away from shelter-in-place restrictions and into further opening of the economy. 


We will continue to move forward incrementally in a safe and measured manner. As we move forward, it is important that as individuals we continue to be vigilant with social distancing, hand washing and wearing face coverings while in public. These measures will go a long way in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 and in turn, allow for a faster reopening of our community.  


Thank you for your commitment to keeping our community safe and healthy.
