As of July 13, 2020, Restaurants and other food service facilities are allowed to operate under the Shelter In Place order, but only to provide the following services:
- Carry Out
- Limited Seated Outdoor Dining*
While indoor seating at restaurants and other food establishments was once allowed in Marin County, California State Governor Gavin Newsom banned indoor seating on July 5 (and reinforced July 13) due to an uptick in cases, increased hospitalizations and outbreaks throughout the state of California and in Marin County. There is no current target for reopening indoor dining.
Additionally, wineries, tasting rooms, bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor, unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals. Sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals, alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal.
Schools and other entities that typically provide free food services to students or members of the public may continue to do so under the Shelter In Place order on the condition that the food is provided to students or members of the public on a pick-up and take-away basis only. Schools and other entities that provide food services under this exemption shall not permit the food to be eaten at the site where it is provided, or at any other gathering site.
Each business must complete the COVID-19 Site Specific Protection Plan (SPP) prior to reopening. The SPP should include approved best practices outlined below.
As new guidelines become available, this webpage will be updated. In the interim, please sign up to receive notifications when business protocols and other information about business reopening is available.
