Marin is open, with some restrictions

Resources

We're all in this together. Stay safe. Keep others safe.

What’s Next?
California will keep a close eye on COVID-19 vaccination and infection rates over the summer and keep the Beyond the Blueprint guidelines in place until at least October 1, 2021. 

As we continue to evolve our strategies for protecting residents of the County from COVID-19, we must take into account both the trajectory of the virus in the County and across the region, and the increased health risks associated with the opening of many Businesses and activities. To protect the community from COVID-19, we must ensure that when people engage in activities they are doing so as safely as possible.

Transportation

Everyone must wear face coverings regardless of vaccination status while riding public transportation and in transportation hubs. Face coverings may be cloth material that covers the mouth and nose. Transit operators can refuse service to riders without a face covering.

Scams

Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the coronavirus. Here are some tips from the FTC to help you keep the scammers at bay:

  • Hang up on robocalls. Don’t press any numbers. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes. The recording might say that pressing a number will let you speak to a live operator or remove you from their call list, but it might lead to more robocalls, instead.
  • Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits. Scammers are trying to get you to buy products that aren’t proven to treat or prevent the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Visit the CDC website to learn more about vaccines approved for emergency use authorization in the US and visit the FDA to learn more about authorized home test kits for the Coronavirus.
  • Fact-check information. Scammers, and sometimes well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been verified. Before you pass on any messages, contact trusted sources. Visit What the U.S. Government is Doing for links to federal, state and local government agencies.
  • Know who you’re buying from. Online sellers may claim to have in-demand products, like cleaning, household, and health and medical supplies when, in fact, they don’t.
  • Don’t respond to texts and emails about checks from the government. The details are still being worked out. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.
  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.
  • Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Don’t let anyone rush you into making a donation. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
