In an urgency item, the Board will consideration an urgency ordinance to adopt administrative penalties for the violation of the County Health Officer’s Orders pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. Towns and cities in Marin were interested in joining the County with enhanced enforcement of public health orders to help curtail the virus' spread. A new task force would collaborate with city and town personnel to focus on business violations throughout the county. The civil penalty for noncommercial health code violations related to COVID-19 would be between $25 and $500. For commercial activity, it would be $250 to $10,000.
