Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The September 1st Marin County Public Health Order requires verification of vaccine status for all public sector employees and includes a testing requirement for unvaccinated first responder workers.  This Order maintains all of the requirements set forth in the prior health order dated August 20th, but clarifies that employers must verify the vaccination status of all personnel.  All staff should report their status (fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or unvaccinated) through our online vaccination tracker.  By having your updated vaccination status, HR can more quickly and accurately provide guidance on isolation and quarantine protocols in the event of an exposure.

UPDATE: On August 2, Marin County joined other Bay Area Counties in requiring the use of masks indoors by all people -- vaccinated or unvaccinated -- out of an abundance of caution due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases.

Beginning August 2, everyone must wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in all indoor settings, such as offices, retail stores, restaurants and bars, theaters, family entertainment centers, conference centers, and State and local government offices serving the public.

Everyone is strongly encouraged to also wear masks indoors at private gatherings where vaccination status cannot be confirmed.  Masks are not required outdoors, but are strongly recommended in crowded environments.

For the most up to date information on current restrictions, please visit the Marin County Public Health webpage on current Health Orders.
