Last week, Governor Newsom announced a Regional Stay at Home Order which will go into effect regionally based on ICU capacity. The State’s Order goes into effect within 48 hours of any region with less than 15% ICU capacity.
All regions, including the Bay Area, are projected to reach this threshold before mid-December. Rather than waiting until ICU bed availability reaches critical levels and delaying inevitable closures, the Health officers for the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara, and the City of Berkeley, have jointly announced that the State’s Regional Stay at Home Order will be implemented now.
Marin County’s order will take effect on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 and will remain in place until January 4, 2021.
The Order instructs residents to avoid gatherings outside of the household and to stay home as much as possible to minimize unnecessary exposure and to help stop the surge of COVID-19 and prevent overwhelming ICU capacity. The Order attempts to strike a balance to continue allowing access to critical services and outdoor activities to preserve Californians’ physical and mental health.
Beginning Tuesday, December 8, the following sectors in Marin County must close:
The following sectors will have additional modifications (in addition to 100% compliance with facial covering and physical distancing protocols):
The following sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible. Those that remain open must have appropriate infectious disease preventative measures in place, including 100% compliance with facial covering and physical distancing protocols:
