There are no longer any local orders that restrict activities or business
San Rafael, CA – As of the June 15 statewide reopening, Marin County no longer has any local COVID-19-related health orders that restrict activities in residents’ lives or in business operations. Marin is now fully aligned with the State of California’s new Beyond the Blueprint framework that went into effect June 15 and eliminated the color-coded tier system for counties.
Marin is aligned with the state’s face covering mandate, which states that everyone should wear a mask in the following settings even if fully vaccinated:
The state’s updated Beyond the Blueprint restrictions are only applicable to masking and mega events as well as settings serving youths. The restrictions for youths could change after expected update to the K-12 schools guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Marin County has retired previous guidance that required patron capacity limits and social distancing for local businesses as part of rescinding its local Risk Reduction Order. Individuals and employers are directed to the state’s COVID-19 website to determine the permissions and restrictions applicable to specific activities and businesses. All workplaces governed by Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards must continue to follow the latest standards and any forthcoming updates, including masking requirements for employees.
As of June 16, more than 89% of Marin residents aged 12 and older had received at least one dose the COVID-19 vaccine, which has directly resulted in reduced case rates. On June 14, Marin reported no COVID-19 hospitalizations for the first time since May 2020. More information about vaccines in Marin can be found at GetVaccinatedMarin.org.
