2. COVID-19 Response Appreciation

Preview

Agenda Item #6: Shortly after convening at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution proclaiming March 15 as COVID-19 Response Appreciation Day in Marin County, honoring local community partners who served during the pandemic response on its two-year anniversary. The County activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) on March 4, 2020, to respond to the emerging public health situation. The keys to Marin’s measurable success since then have been meaningful and effective community partnership and radical collaboration. At every phase of the pandemic, community partners were highly engaged and ready to co-create change and transform inequitable conditions.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.

Members of the two governing bodies could direct County staff to narrow down the list by eliminating some eligible locations. Staff is requesting Board direction on site alternatives.
